Please always keep the bug in Cc, so that I am not the only
recipient of the mail. Writing to me only means risking falling in
the middle of my vacations and thus not getting an answer for weeks,
or that I just don't have the time to answer and thus you would at
best get a terse answer, or worse, no answer at all... Conversely,
keeping the bug in Cc means avoiding all these issues completely,
you'll involve all the community to help you, make the answers you
get available to everyone, and even archived for web crawlers to find
them whenever somebody has the same issue.

Does /dev/softsynth exist after that?

If not, what does dmesg tell?
