Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 54221
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:26 EDT
(I'm totally guessing as to the component here)
On 7.2 release, installation creates an empty mail file for the nfsnobody
account. One example:
$ ls -l /var/spool/mail
-rw-rw---- 1 kaboom kaboom 0 Sep 17 05:55 kaboom
-rw-rw---- 1 nfsnobod nfsnobod 0 Sep 16 10:05 nfsnobody
-rw------- 1 root root 7780 Sep 28 08:55 root
My guess is that it's being generated when the nfsnobody account is added?

Yikes, you're right. 'nfsnobody' should have been added as a system account. I
think you'll find dummy .bash* and .gtkrc files in /var/lib/nfs/ too. All of
these can be safely deleted.
