Description Jan Pazdziora 2016-02-24 07:23:57 UTC
Description of problem:

When mod_nss package is installed, new empty file /0 is created, not owned by the package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

mod_nss-1.0.12-1.fc23.x86_64

How reproducible:

Deterministic.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install -y httpd # so that we have all the dependencies and we know that the next dnf install will only install that one mod_nss package
2. ls -l /0 # check that it says ls: cannot access /0: No such file or directory

3. dnf install -y mod_nss
4. ls -l /0

Actual results:

-rw-------. 1 root root 0 Feb 24 02:20 /0

Expected results:

ls: cannot access /0: No such file or directory

Additional info:

I don't see it happening with mod_nss-1.0.11-6.el7.x86_64 and mod_nss-1.0.11-6.fc22.x86_64, therefore marking as regression.

Comment 1 Rob Crittenden 2016-02-24 13:18:37 UTC
And so it does. This file isn't owned by mod_nss which leads me to believe that gencert is creating it during %post.

Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2016-02-24 13:21:47 UTC
It seems like the line

    if [ $# > 0 ]; then

in /usr/sbin/gencert could be causing it.

Comment 3 Rob Crittenden 2016-02-24 14:26:07 UTC
It occurs again later as well when comparing $SNI.
