Description Johannes Schmid 2004-12-14 13:30:29 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
As the booleans file carries important information about the current
selinux configuration, it should not get replaced when updating the
selinux policy (thus causing some software to fail because the boolean
properties are reset to the default properties!)

Yes, I know, you were changing the format of the file from True/False
to 1/0 values, but this is no excuse :-) If neccessary, run a %post
script that updates the boolean file to the new format, but simply
overwriting a config file is never a good idea.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install selinux-policy-targeted
2. change booleans file
3. update the selinux-policy-targeted


Actual Results:  current (correct) config file will get renamed to
booleans.rpmsave, booleans is now the default config file 
-- your software breaks :-(

Expected Results:  new booleans will get saved as booleans.rpmnew, old
booleans is not touched.
