MAKEDEV-3.0.6-5 RPM for i386

From Red Hat Linux 7.0 for i386

Name: MAKEDEV Distribution: BlueSky
Version: 3.0.6 Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release: 5 Build date: Thu Aug 24 11:01:03 2000
Group: System Environment/Base Build host:
Size: 400200 Source RPM: MAKEDEV-3.0.6-5.src.rpm
Packager: Red Hat, Inc. <>
Summary: A program used for creating the device files in /dev.
This package contains the MAKEDEV script, which makes it easier to create
and maintain the files in the /dev directory.  /dev directory files
correspond to a particular device supported by Linux (serial or printer
ports, scanners, sound cards, tape drives, CD-ROM drives, hard drives,
etc.) and interface with the drivers in the kernel.

You should install the MAKEDEV package because the MAKEDEV utility makes
it easy to manage the /dev directory device files.
