Comment 1 Michal Jaegermann 2005-11-26 17:52:53 EST
I am seeing the same error now with selinux-policy-targeted-2.0.5-4 too.
In fact it prevents proper updates.  It was necessary to use 'rpm --force ...'
or, according to rpm, I am stuck forever with selinux-policy-targeted-2.0.4-1.
Comment 2 Stephen Warren 2005-12-05 23:45:45 EST
I see the same error messages here, *but* "rpm -q selinux-policy-targeted" shows
that the install did actually occur - no need to force it.

I installed fc5test1

I have been booting with selinux=0

On 2005/12/05 21:40 MST, I was actually able to get a "yum update" to go through
for the first time, which picked up selinux-policy-targeted-2.0.8-1

I haven't made any local modifications to the selinux config file (not knowingly
at least!)
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2005-12-06 10:54:02 EST
Did you see the same problem with 2.0.8-1?

Comment 4 Michal Jaegermann 2005-12-06 13:07:34 EST
> Did you see the same problem with 2.0.8-1?

No, I do not; but because of the other trouble described in bug #174953
I am not sure if this is masked, I am not getting that far, the other one
is really a different manifestation of the same, or this is truly gone.
