Description Tim Powers 2004-01-21 18:47:54 UTC
We created a chroot environment to run mass rebuild tests for the
current devel stream for what will eventually become Test 1 for FC2.

The main OS installed outside of the chroot is RHEL 3 U1. 

When I chroot into the chrooted environment I see these messages:

[root@loki rebuildtest]# /usr/sbin/chroot .
id: can't get process context
id: can't get process context
id: can't get process context
bash: [: too many arguments
[root@loki /]#

Now, this may be /proc not being mounted or something else odd, I'm
not sure. Elliot said there's a bug WRT SELinux and coreutils, so I'm
filing this through his recommendation and setting the owner to dwalsh.

This is caused by a change in the definition of is_selinux_enabled. 
This used to be a boolean function, but now it returns >0 if enabled 0
if not enabled and -1 if unknown.  IE /proc not mounted.  Most of the
SELinux code is written expecting the boolean.  I have rewritten the
coreutils patch to fix this problem.  I need to look at other kits to
see what the correct thing to do is.
