Description Orion Poplawski 2005-02-17 19:04:20 EST
Description of problem:

Did a yum update on the baseurl=ftp://people.redhat.com/dwalsh/SELinux/Fedora/
 repository.  Not sure exactly which package generated the restorecon output,
but I got a lot of:

/sbin/restorecon get context on /opt/local/udunits-1.11.7-pgf64/bin/udunits
failed: 'Operation not supported'
/sbin/restorecon get context on /opt/local/udunits-pgf64 failed: 'Operation not
/sbin/restorecon get context on /opt/local/xgks-pgf64 failed: 'Operation not

/opt/local is a NFS mounted directory.  Should restorecon really traverse NFS
directories?  Shouldn't the host system be responsible.

end of yum output:

Latest policycoreutils uses find to eliminate nfs traversal and pipes
output to restorecon. 

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2005-03-10 16:27:55 EST
I'm running with policycoreutils-1.21.22-2 now.  I'll let you know if
I see this again.  I've see some restorecon output since without
seeing any NFS directories, but not sure if that proves this is fixed.
