Description Karsten Hopp 2008-04-16 07:26:19 EDT
Description of problem:
Several packages run fixfiles in their %post script and the script failes when
selinux is disabled, p.e.:
  Installier: glpi                         ################### [2891/6284]
semodule: SELinux policy is not managed or store cannot be accessed.
cut: Schreibfehler: Daten├╝bergabe unterbrochen (broken pipe)

The problem here is the glpi spec file is not checking if SELinux is installed.

It should be using 

semodule -s targeted glpi.pp

You don't need to install a Policy Package for this either.

semanage fcontext could be used.

/etc/glpi(/.*)?          root:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0
/var/log/glpi(/.*)?   system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0
/var/lib/glpi(/.*)?   system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0

This would be better if you specified.

/etc/glpi(/.*)?       system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0
/var/log/glpi(/.*)?   system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_script_rw_t:s0
Do the php scripts actually read/write this directory or could you label it
/var/lib/glpi(/.*)?   system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_script_rw_t:s0

@daniel, thanks

Next release will use semanage fcontext.
