Description of problem:
Fails to compile (prep patch fails) when selinux disabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -v -ba --define "WITH_SELINUX 0" vixie-cron.spec
Actual Results: Fails at patch13.
Expected Results: Should compile properly
SELinux is an integral part of Fedora Core and our packages are designed to
support it . If you wish to build a Linux system that does not support SELinux,
you are free to do so, but it will not be Fedora Core .
vixie-cron does not need to compile without SELinux; hence, this is NOTABUG .
For the enhanced version of vixie-cron I am working on, SELinux support is in
separate source files, which should make compilation with SELinux much easier.
I have already successssfully patched and recompiled the entired FC4 set of
applications (including extras) without SELINUX.
I have patched all broken spec files which is where the problems have been in
So, contrary to what you say, it *is* Fedora Core.
