Description Jonathan S. Shapiro 2005-05-04 01:12:29 EDT

  setenforce 0 does not fully disable selinux

repeat by:

  create an empty directory somewhere, say, /mumble
  setenforce 0
  yum --installroot=/mumble groupinstall Base

watch all of the postinstall scripts fail

Which begs the question: why does selinux mishandle chroot environments this way
(subject of another bug report).
Comment 1 Jonathan S. Shapiro 2005-05-05 20:36:40 EDT
I have a better understanding of what was happening with this example, and I
think the bug should be closed. Certainly, it's not high priority. I'm closing
it accordingly.
