    Can't change ownership of /dev file

    Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to change the ownership of a device file (/dev/dsp). Strangely it has the main system user (that would be me in this case) as it's owner. When I chown it from "me" to root it changes. When I reboot the system it is no longer root's but "mine." I feel like I can't even give something away, like it's return a gift or something

    Hmm.. add that command (the chmod one) to an rc.local script or something and forget about it
