Don't use that text-speak junk...spell out your words...and we volunteer our time here...do NOT come here and tell us to hurry up and answer you "without hesitate". And as you were told in another thread of yours...if you put this into Google, you'd have gotten an answer quicker.

The devel packages for ANYTHING are the development libraries/source code for the software. It lets you build it.

Woah, hang on, he's clearly not very experienced with English, nothing to do with text speak. Take it easy.
