Description Florin Andrei 2004-04-30 17:37:04 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040116

Description of problem:
I'm just doing "yum install blah" type-of-thing. It pretty much works
fine, however, it vomits a bunch of selinux warnings, even though
selinux is supposedly disabled in FC2t3.
There are hundreds of warnings, i'm only copy/pasting a few:

/etc/security/selinux/file_contexts:  invalid context
root:object_r:staff_home_xauth_t on line number 1853
/etc/security/selinux/file_contexts:  invalid context
system_u:object_r:default_context_t on line number 1854
/etc/security/selinux/file_contexts:  invalid context
system_u:object_r:amanda_recover_dir_t on line number 1855
/etc/security/selinux/file_contexts:  invalid context
system_u:object_r:staff_home_spamassassin_t on line number 1856

Is it an issue with selinux? With yum?
I'm not even sure it's a bug proper - feel free to close the ticket if
i'm talking through my hat.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run "yum install ..."

Actual Results:  hundreds upon hundreds of selinux warnings

Expected Results:  no warnings, 'cause selinux is allegedly turned off
