the compilation was successful but the script was unable to create all 
the required device files.

You probably no longer have enough available device major numbers in the 
range 240-249. Please send at support at linuxant.com the output of 
'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

hsfconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('hsfdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
