Ok, I blew it on this one, but just sent out an announcement on
Thanks Daniel. This also updated cleanly for me. No new *.rpmnew files.
But the new selinux-policy-strict 1.19.10-2 still has this problem.
Not sure what you mean by still has this problem.
Yeah, I should have opened a new bug on this. What I mean is that the
new selinux-policy-strict-1.19.10-2 rpm has the same problem that you
seem to have fixed in the selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.39 update.
selinux-policy-strict-1.19.10-2 creates two *.rpmnew files during the
So it requires manual action for the user to get the policy activated.
The funny thing is the 10-2 has the fix and the 2.39 does not. I
think you are seeing the problem, because of a previous install. The
fix will only work on a fresh install or an install where the RPMNEW
files were moved over the the policy.18/file_context files. Once the
files differ from the installed version, you will always get an RPMNEW
file. The sources update should reload the policy though.
Dan, today I did fresh full install of FC3 and applied all currently
available updates including:
Again I got *.rpmnew from the strict and targeted update.
Yes this is because the full install on FC3 installs an older version
of selinux-policy-targeted-sources which will modify the policy.18 and
file_context file. So any package you install afterwards will see
that they are modified. If you move back the original policy.18.rpmnew
and file_context.new files and install. Then everything will work fine.
So until FC4, this will be a problem.
