Bug Description


We see:

[pid 4565] access("/usr/lib/snapd/snap-device-helper", X_OK) = 0
[pid 4565] execve("/usr/lib/snapd/snap-device-helper", ["/usr/lib/snapd/snap-device-helpe"..., "add", "snap_notepad-plus-plus_notepad-p"..., "/sys/class/mem/null", "1:3"], 0x7ffd0dce6418 /* 0 vars */) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
[pid 4565] write(2, "execl failed", 12execl failed) = 12
[pid 4565] write(2, ": No such file or directory\n", 28: No such file or directory

This is a problem of the location of the interpreter of the shell script "snap-device-helper"

On Fedora, the interpreter is #!/usr/bin/sh. The change is introduced automatically when building the RPM.

I can confirm that this change helps on Fedora 29:

Maciej, was this ever solved? I don't have a Fedora system immediately available to check this on
