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 (USB, parallel
or serial ports, scanners, sound cards, hard/optical/tape drives, etc.)
and interface with the drivers in the kernel.

2013-05-12 - Denis Smirnov <> 3.3.1-alt21
- replace Zaptel to DAHDI
- remove /dev/MAKEDEV
2008-03-31 - Michael Shigorin <> 3.3.1-alt20
- whoops, unfinished re-re-making of preinstall script
(alt19 didn't really test for udev due to wrong src.rpm
having been chosen for upload)
- forgot re-adding dev package as well
- thus rebuilt
- don't break package uninstallation either
(bug introduced in 3.3.1-alt19)
