Confused : MAKEDEV



Hi,
I am trying to build a minimal Linux from source code. I am not following Linux From Scratch as my purpose is not to have a fully functional build, just for educational purpose. So I am following "Build a Mimimal Linux System from Source Code' which is recommended in LFS document.


One of the 1st steps is to run MAKEDEV. My machine has Fedora Core 1 installed, so I got to FC1 download site and get MAKEDEV-3.3.8 source code package, and now the questions are;

1) From what I see MAKEDEV version seems the latest is 1.7, on some site I do see 2.x, but I never see version 3. Then where does this version 3.3.8 come from? Is it a special version from RedHat?

2) After unzip the package I see the files are like this,
<root>
COPYING MAKEDEV.spec genataraid genida
MAKEDEV.c Makefile gencciss makedev.d
MAKEDEV.m devices.txt gendac960 mksock.c
<root>/makedev.d
00macros ia64 linux-2.2.x raid std_s390
cdrom ibcs linux-2.4.x redhat undocumented
console ide linux1394 s390 usb
ftape ipfilter mouse sound v4l
generic isdn qic std


I can not see README file detailing how I should build/install. I take a look at the Makefile, it seems I should do the followinf steps:

      export DESTDIR=/mnt/mybld
       make
       make install

Is this correct?

I list the Makefile below.

Thanks a lot.
