Lintian ReportsBETA


The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

Maintainer scripts must not create device files directly. They should call MAKEDEV instead.

If mknod is being used to create a FIFO (named pipe), use mkfifo instead to avoid triggering this tag.

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.6 for details.
