Description Robert Scheck 2006-01-03 06:46:19 EST
Description of problem:
After installing latest libsetrans, I get with every filesystem activity (cp,
mv etc.), which would relabel a file and/or directory, the message "cannot set 
setfscreatecon `root:object_r:src_t': Invalid argument".

The problem disappears soon when downgrading to libsetrans-0.1.11-3 using
(rpm -Uvh --oldpackage). But I had to execute this command twice to have a
sane "rpm -V libsetrans" output (which is nothing in this case).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime for me, see above.

Actual results:
Error message "cannot set setfscreatecon `root:object_r:src_t': Invalid 
argument" at cp, mv etc.

Expected results:
Working like before ;-)

Additional info:
Oh I'm using selinux-policy-targeted, but I guess this is less relevant.
