I have created images for my software using the podman build command.
application uses named pipes to communicate. So during installation I
create the fifo using the mkfifo command. But when I start the container
I find all named pipes missing. Every time I start the container,
I have to re-create the pipes using mkfifo. I have tried images from
fedora, debian, ubuntu, opensuse and the problem is being faced on
all. Apart from named pipes, other types of files are getting saved.
As a workaround, I run a script using docker-entrypoint to recreate
the named pipes.
This is not happening if I use docker command to run the image.
Even images built by the docker build command, when I use
podman to run the image, the named pipes go missing.
This is all I did to simulate the issue
1 podman pull someimage
2 podman run --name test -ti imageid bash
3 podman save test test
4 podman stop test
5 podman run --name test -ti newimageid bash
ls -l # this shows that the file is missing and didn't get saved
I have pasted the result of the test using podman and docker here
Is there anything special I need to do to have these files seen and accessible?

Built a little script.
This works in rootfull and fails in rootless.
podman rm test1
podman rmi image1
podman run --name test1 fedora mkfifo /root/test
podman diff test1
podman commit test1 image1
podman run image1 ls -l /root/test
