I don't understand the magic behind the device special files, /dev,
MAKEDEV, block/character/fifo and mknod. It's not about details - it's
more about the fact, that I am not able to imagine the whole thing.
Can somebody help me with a hint, tutorial or something else? The
MAKEDEV-/mknod-manpage helped just a little bit..
Thank you & with kind regards,
P.S. Please tell me, if this is the wrong list.
