From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
After clean install of FC2T2 today (workstation with defaults) then
run yum update and I get:

# yum update
policy 100 % done 79/389
/usr/sbin/load_policy:  security_load_policy failed
error: %post(policy-1.9.2-5) scriptlet failed, exit status 3

After update complete then I have two policy packages:

# rpm -q policy

Then when I install kernel-source:

# yum install kernel-source

I will install/upgrade these to satisfy the dependencies:
[deps: qt-devel 1:3.3.1-0.7.i386]
Is this ok [y/N]: y

I don't know if this is related?   On a side note: qt-devel is
required by kernel-source package?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.clean install of FC2T2
2.run yum update
3.yum install kernel-source

Actual Results:  policy errors and two policy packages

Expected Results:  no errors and a single policy package

Additional info:

I don't know anything (yet) about selinux but I'm using a clean FC2T2
install with:

# cat /etc/sysconfig/selinux
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-02 23:45:55 EST
This is being caused because we had a major release upgrade in the
kernel you are running but you have not rebooted yet.  The kernel went
from 15->16  The Makefile was upgraded but is not smart enough to know
if you rebooted into the new kernel yet.  We will make sure the
Makefile checks this in the future when the version changes.

If you reboot your machine everything should work.
