on x86_64 (opteron) too, still, as I just upgraded to 2.1.6-18

I am getting this error with selinux-policy-targeted- and
selinux-policy-targeted- (depending on which mirror I hit).

I am on a Sempron 2800+ with all FC5 rawhide updates through 2006.01.02 plus
some from 2006.01.03. I have kernel 1807 (still) installed.

To resolve this, I tried
yum remove selinux-policy-targeted.noarch
yum install selinux-policy-targeted.noarch

(again depending on which mirror I hit, I ended up reinstalling either

After this failure, on reboot, my symptoms are similar (perhaps even identical
to) those described in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=176839
System will boot with selinux=0

fixed in selinux-policy-targeted-2.1.6-24
Comment 4 Doug Henderson 2006-01-04 19:56:23 EST
This works for me.

I installed selinux-policy-targeted.noarch 2.1.6-24, reboot (with a few selinux
messages), touched /.autorelabel and rebooted again. System now boots without
