Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-05-04 00:40:06 UTC
Description of problem:

It was my understanding that by default SELinux is not active
in FC2T3.  With an installation of the last one from scratch,
and no change in SELinux defaults, after I tried to add some rpm
updates I got a long series of messages like that:

kernel: security_context_to_sid: called before initial load_policy on
unknown context system_u:object_r:default_t

Over 1500 of these with varying contexts.  Only booting with
'selinux=0' as a boot parameter seems to kill that noise.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-06 22:23:19 UTC
This is because rpm's check for selinux being enabled or not wasn't
quite good enough, but with new SysVinit, that should be better.
