Description Jeremy Katz 2008-03-06 17:43:03 EST
When doing a livecd creation (and earlier, I think I hit this doing a yum
update), when the policy was loaded, the X server went unhappy and several apps
crashed with a BadValue error.  This seems bad.

Are you sure you are up2date.  There was some similar problems on an x release a
week or so ago.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-06 19:23:28 EST
The crash I had earlier wasn't fully updated, I had last updated it about a week

But the livecd creation was after just updating my workstation to current
rawhide, rebooting and making sure I could still build live images.  So it was
definitely current.  Also, we need to be very very very sure that reloading
policy/updating doesn't kill the X server as doing so is a good way to lead to
significant problems on people's systems.

Sorted in  X-SELinux will be off by default in F9.
