Description Marek Greško 2015-12-05 02:02:53 EST
Description of problem:
Update of selinux-policy-targeted policy removes locally set security rules.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All version contained in Fedora 23.

How reproducible:
After every dnf update containing new selinux-policy-targeted package.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create some local rules by using semanage fcontext.
2. Rules are contained in /etc/selinux/targeted/context/files/file_contexts.local file.
3. After selinux-policy-targeted update the file /etc/selinux/targeted/context/files/file_contexts.local does not contain created rules.

Actual results:
Locally created rules do not survive selinux-policy-targeted update since upgrade to Fedora 23.

Expected results:
Locally created rules survive selinux-policy-targeted update.

We added fixes for this issue. What does

rpm -qf selinux-policy-targeted
Comment 2 Marek Greško 2015-12-10 14:22:13 EST
Command rpm -qf selinux-policy-targeted is non-sense. It would try to detect package which owns selinux-policy-targeted file.

You probably mean rpm -qi selinux-policy-targeted:

I fixed permissions on 9-th of November 2015 and the issue appeared again. I am not sure whether it was caused by latest update on 27-th of November. Maybe another update between the dates caused it. Was there some update these days and was the bug fixed afterwards?

Issue appeared again with fresh update today. I updated to selinux-policy-targeted-3.13.1-157.fc23.noarch.
Comment 4 Miroslav Grepl 2015-12-15 08:16:03 EST
Ok this is a different issue.
