Hmm... grep -B2 snd /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules # alsa devices SUBSYSTEM=="sound", GROUP="audio" KERNEL=="controlC[0-9]*", NAME="snd/%k" KERNEL=="hw[CD0-9]*", NAME="snd/%k" KERNEL=="pcm[CD0-9cp]*", NAME="snd/%k" KERNEL=="midiC[D0-9]*", NAME="snd/%k" KERNEL=="timer", NAME="snd/%k" KERNEL=="seq", NAME="snd/%k" So... basically what you did is add the main /dev dir symlinks...
