Description Tom Horsley 2004-04-12 01:42:50 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
I told install to disable selinux, I verified it was disabled
in the config file, yet every time I install an rpm, I get
hundreds of messages like this:

/etc/security/selinux/file_contexts:  invalid context 
system_u:object_r:default_t on line number 39
... (hundreds just like this for each line number)...
/etc/security/selinux/file_contexts:  invalid context 
system_u:object_r:amanda_recover_dir_t on line number 1833

I don't call this "disabled". Thousands and thousands of us out
here think there is little difference between a brick and a secure
system, and if "disabling" selinux is going to insist on dragging
in brick-like attributes, we ain't gonna like fedora much :-).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2T2
2. Tell it to disable selinux during install
3. run "yum update" to get latestst and greatest
4. run any old "rpm -i" command
5. watch the hundreds of messages

Actual Results:  The hundreds of error messages about invalid context

Expected Results:  No selinux related warnings on a system with 
selinux disabled.
