Description Glen A. Foster 2002-04-16 11:07:52 EDT
Description of Problem: The character-special file /dev/zero is not created by
default at install-time (although MAKEDEV knows how to create it).  This
violates the LSB-FHS requirements for entries in /dev.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q dev
dev-3.2-5

How Reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install LSB tests
2. Run the LSB-FHS tests

Actual Results:
test-script labelled "/LSB.fhs/linux/dev/dev-tc" fails on case #47:

400|47 5 1 16:35:39|IC Start
200|47 5 16:35:39|TP Start
520|47 5 3997 1 1|Reference 6.1.3-5(A)
520|47 5 3997 1 2|The /dev/zero  device exists with
520|47 5 3997 1 3|major number 1 and minor number 5
520|47 5 3997 1 4|exit code 1 returned, expected 0
220|47 5 1 16:35:39|FAIL
410|47 5 1 16:35:39|IC End

Expected Results: Test should pass
