But when I try and make this, it just errors on 'trying to write to make file' 
Any suggestions?

When trying to run a filesystem backup via webmin on a CentOS machine I'm getting the below error.

Failed to open /dev/pts/5 : No such file or directory

I think I've had this before under FreeBSD, but can't remember what I did.
