Ok, I blew it on this one, but just sent out an announcement on


Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2004-12-03 08:28:30 UTC
Thanks Daniel. This also updated cleanly for me. No new *.rpmnew files.

But the new selinux-policy-strict 1.19.10-2 still has this problem.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2004-12-03 15:03:15 UTC
Not sure what you mean by still has this problem.


Comment 4 Bernd Bartmann 2004-12-03 15:13:42 UTC
Yeah, I should have opened a new bug on this. What I mean is that the
new selinux-policy-strict-1.19.10-2 rpm has the same problem that you
seem to have fixed in the selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.39 update.

selinux-policy-strict-1.19.10-2 creates two *.rpmnew files during the

So it requires manual action for the user to get the policy activated. 

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2004-12-03 16:02:08 UTC
The funny thing is the 10-2 has the fix and the 2.39 does not.  I
think you are seeing the problem, because of a previous install.  The
fix will only work on a fresh install or an install where the RPMNEW
files were moved over the the policy.18/file_context files.  Once the
files differ from the installed version, you will always get an RPMNEW
file.  The sources update should reload the policy though.


Comment 6 Bernd Bartmann 2004-12-10 17:18:55 UTC
Dan, today I did fresh full install of FC3 and applied all currently
available updates including:


Again I got *.rpmnew from the strict and targeted update.

Comment 7 Daniel Walsh 2004-12-10 17:46:16 UTC
Yes this is because the full install on FC3 installs an older version
of selinux-policy-targeted-sources which will modify the policy.18 and
file_context file.  So  any package you install afterwards will see
that they are modified. If you move back the original policy.18.rpmnew
and file_context.new files and install.  Then everything will work fine.

So until FC4, this will be a problem.
