Description Gene Czarcinski 2004-04-06 08:07:34 EDT
Description of problem:

The policy-1.9.2-12 installs policy.16 ... good, that problem fixed.

Unfortunately, policy-sources-1.9.2-12 then installs policy.15

/selinux/policyver says 16
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-06 08:13:14 EDT
It has been changed to install both, in case you are booting with an
older kernel.  Why is this a problem.  It is only loading the
currently running kernel's policy.

Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2004-04-06 08:24:43 EDT
That does not look like what is happening to me.  I installed this
"manually" ... first policy, then policy-sources.  I am attaching the
console log so you can se what I am seeing.

Comment 4 Gene Czarcinski 2004-04-06 08:35:05 EDT
And then maybe I cannot actually see correctly!

I just looked at that again and, yes, it does install policy.15 and
policy.16 (at least that is what the timestamp says).  With all of the
messages about 15 I missed the "cat /selinux/policyver"

Before I close this as notabug, is policy doing the right thing?  It
did not actually update anything (added file_contexts.rpmnew and
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-06 08:37:56 EDT
Yes policy should not replace policy.16 or file_contexts if they have
been updated locally. 

Policy-sources should however rebuild them and replace them will the
local mods.

Comment 6 Gene Czarcinski 2004-04-06 08:41:11 EDT
OK, then it looks like everything is doing the right thing ... now
back to testing the policies themselves.
