Description Richard McMahon 2005-01-23 04:47:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
Running fixfiles against a package produces the following:

[root@sam cups]# /sbin/fixfiles -R cups-1.1.22-0.rc1.8.4 restore
/sbin/fixfiles: line 76: restorecon: command not found

line 76 of fixfiles looks like:

rpmlist $i | restorecon ${OUTFILES} -R -v -f - 2>&1 >> $LOGFILE

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. execute /sbin/fixfiles

Actual Results:  as above

Additional info:

If I add /sbin to my path or add /sbin/ in front of restorecon
throughout fixfiles, it works

I personally think that having /sbin in root's path is not a great
idea. Perhaps setting PATH to $PATH:/sbin at the start of fixfiles,
and any other scripts, would be a solution.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2005-01-24 14:21:20 EST
I am merging this change in from upstream.

Should be fixed in policycoreutils-1.18.1-2.6
