Description of problem:
updating SysVinit with "rpm -Uvh" fails with an error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
This looks like a very confused install. You probably have bad policy
and need to relabel. You can try the following to cleanup
That should fix your labeling.
