ssia, I can't run watch since adding more restrictive firewall rules. I
don't see how that would stop watch from working..

I don't have a snp0 device..but I'm running 5.0 so I can't run MAKEDEV.
I'm a bit confused about devfs and how it makes devices. In my
searches, making the device seems to be the solution most of the time.

How do I make the device, or is there something else it could be?

Thanks :)
