Description of problem:
The selinux-policy-targeted update 1.17.30-2.34 leaves .rpmnew files
lying around. This make the update useless as Joe user has no idea how
to handle .rpmnew files.
Here is the list of the *.rpmnew files I found after the update:
Also were is the announcement for the update?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. update to latest selinux-policy-targeted
These files are being created because you installed
selinux-policy-targeted-sources and that install updated the policy.18
and file_contexts file.
We are working on newer versions and ways of fixing this problem. You
can replace the policy.18 and file context file with the rpmnew file.
Ok, do I have to re-run some tool like after the renaming or a reboot?
How does the new policy come into effect?
You can do a mv
mv policy.18.rpmnew policy.18
And you are done.
