Description Hussam Qasem 2005-05-26 04:42:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050523 CentOS/1.0.4-1.4.1.centos4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
In the document:

$SELINUX_POLICY is a substitute for the generic directory of /etc/selinux/<policyname>/policy/

However, later on you describe other important files:

Other important files and directories include $SELINUX_POLICY/booleans and $SELINUX_POLICY/contexts/

Which is incorrect. So please do either:
1) Define $SELINUX_POLICY as "/etc/selinux/<policyname>/" and the binary policy resides under $SELINUX_POLICY/policy/policy.18
2) Define important files as $SELINUX_POLICY/../booleans and $SELINUX_POLICY/../contexts/

Thank you!

Version this refers to is  rhel-selg(EN)-4-HTML-RHI (2005-02-15-T16:20)

Thanks for the catch.  I used the incorrect entity in the DocBook source and
didn't notice the incorrect info.  I'll be sure this gets into the next update
for this guide.
