No, your assumption was correct, i am in chapter 6. Thx for your support 
, but i have just solved the problem. I am not sure, but could it be, 
that a small error within my /etc/group could have caused this?
the tty line in my group file looked like this: ttx:x:4: After 
correcting this and restarting "MAKEDEV -v generic-nopty" expect -c 
"spwan ls" outputs the expected result... strange ...
