Description Bastien Nocera 2005-10-04 09:56:48 EDT
$ rpm -qa | grep selinux

$ seinfo
Error while searching for default policy: This is not an selinux system.

$ strace -eaccess -v seinfo
access("/etc/ld.so.preload", R_OK)      = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
access("/etc/selinux/strict//policy", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
Error while searching for default policy: This is not an selinux system.

It looks only for the strict policy, but the targeted policy is correctly installed.

$ ls /etc/selinux/

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2005-10-04 16:52:23 EDT
Fixed in the upstream version, but am not sure we will put them in U3.
Comment 5 Stephen John Smoogen 2005-11-14 12:18:18 EST
As a side note, it would be nice to get this into U3, please. It is causing some
of our security administrators paper-work headaches that listed commands to
check for compliance are not working :).
