I use SuSE 6.4 myself, and have had the same problem. Some device nodes
were installed with the wrong major/minor nrs, resulting in the wrong
device drivers/hardware being accessed by the wrong software.

A patch is available at www.suse.com, but i don't know if that does the
trick. I changed the nodes manually.
