Description Marko Myllynen 2017-01-16 10:26:46 UTC
Description of problem:
The container-selinux package does not Obsolete the docker-selinux which can lead to a situation especially when upgrading that both packages are installed which in turn causes error messages about duplicate label definitions.

Since container-selinux aims to replace docker-selinux it should Obsolete docker-selinux on RPM level.

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

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2017-01-16 15:50:52 UTC
We should also do docker-engine-selinux.

Comment 3 Lokesh Mandvekar 2017-01-18 12:24:42 UTC
Apologies I missed this. I guess at the moment this issue can be taken care of by manually removing docker-selinux, correct? 

We can file this as a known issue until the next update.

Correct, rpm -e docker-selinux or yum remove-n docker-selinux will do the trick. (Note the usage of remove-n instead of remove, if only container-selinux is present then yum remove docker-selinux would currently remove container-selinux.)


Comment 5 Lokesh Mandvekar 2017-01-18 16:01:13 UTC
On an Atomic Host, the only way to do this would be

# ostree admin unlock
# rpm -e docker-selinux

Is that right? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Comment 6 Colin Walters 2017-01-18 16:15:30 UTC
This issue shouldn't affect Atomic Host, since every base commit is like a fresh install.

Comment 7 Yoana Ruseva 2017-01-18 16:30:49 UTC
Does it affect RHEL users?
