makedev

creates device files in /dev

Description

The MAKEDEV executable is used to create device files, often in /dev.

Device files are special files through which applications can interact with hardware.

This package is not necessary for most modern Linux systems, where the udev subsystem provides a more dynamic mechanism for device file management.
