Re: what created /.memdump ?

I found .memdump in my root directory too.

Since there are only a handful of packages that need to modify the
root directory, I made it immutable with chattr +i. With the immutable
flag set, not even root processes can alter the root
directory. Packages that try to create things in the root directory
will fail, and bug reports can be filed as appropriate.
