Description Daniel Walsh 2004-10-22 18:11:02 UTC
Description of problem:
RPM leaves /etc/ld.so.cache with the an incorrect context.

Basically when rpm execs ldconfig it is doing it as rpm_script_t or

I would track the updates in rawhide not in my directory.
Also I use the ftp directory

But people should be getting updates to strict policy from rawhide.


Comment 5 Ed Bailey 2004-10-25 15:51:24 UTC
Not enough time to put together an FC3 release notes entry on this;
pulling from the FC3 relnotes blocker bug...

Comment 9 John Flanagan 2004-11-12 14:38:09 UTC
