This package contains the makedev program, 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.
The makedev package is a basic part of your Mageia system and it needs
to be installed.
