Description Fabian Deutsch 2016-02-01 05:13:19 EST
Description of problem:
If livecd-creator is creating an iso from packageset which also includes a custom selinux policy which is not installed on the host, then livecd-creator fails, because the relabeling inside the chroot fails.

To fix bug 1121301 a check was added to fail if enforcing mode is set in the kickstart. This is maybe semantically not good, because the kickstart describes the requirement on the runtime, and should not have this direct affect at build time.
I understand why the fix was introduced, but it should be implemented different. I.e. add a switch to livecd-creator to fail on this kind of a problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 7.2
CentOS 7.2


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a kickstart which includes an selinux module which is not used on the build host
2. Run livecd-creator

Actual results:
iso build fails

Expected results:
iso build succeeds

Additional info:
- This looks like a regression of bug 1121301
- This is filed in CentOS as well: https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=10243
- There is a patch which reverts the fix for 1121301: https://github.com/tlitovsk/livecd-tools/commit/247ccd1d860aefa231e0216d450559b777d77408
