Description Milan Kerslager 2005-03-15 20:49:02 UTC
When one generates self-signed certificate with provided Makefile by following
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-4-Manual/sysadmin-guide/s1-secureserver-selfsigned.html,
this leads to have troubles with Mozilla and Firefox because the same serial
number after second use. Please patch provided /usr/share/ssl/certs/Makefile to
allow simple passing serial number to the generating process for self signed
certificates.

I'll fill a bug against RHEL-SAG to point to this problem too.
