Description Roozbeh Pournader 2004-10-12 18:10:42 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
updating SysVinit with "rpm -Uvh" fails with an error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
SysVinit-2.85-34

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download SysVinit-2.85-34.i386.rpm
2. run "rpm -Uvh SysVinit-2.85-34.i386.rpm"

Actual Results:  The installation fails with the following error message: 
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /dev/initctl: cpio:
lsetfilecon failed - Permission denied


Expected Results: SysVinit should install.

Additional info: this may be due to an unclean previous installation
or update of SysVinit, since "rpm -q SysVinit" give no results, but
the files (like /sbin/shutdown) are there, with no ownership by a package.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2004-10-18 20:18:17 UTC
This looks like a very confused install.  You probably have bad policy
and need to relabel.  You can try the following to cleanup

setenforce 0
install system-config-targeted 
touch /.autorelabel 
reboot
That should fix your labeling.
