Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-02-16 06:54:34 UTC
Description of problem:
/etc/sysconfig/selinux is created as a symlink to /etc/selinux/config.  Problem
is, if I mount an alternate root filesystem and proceed to edit
/etc/sysconfig/selinux, I'll end up modifying my current root's
/etc/selinux/config, instead of the one in the alternate root.  Please change it
from -> /etc/selinux/config to -> ../selinux/config.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2006-02-16 14:42:37 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.2.16-1

Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2006-02-22 04:37:18 UTC
I see the %post script is fixed, but that won't fix existing symlinks.  Oh,
well...  I guess that ought to be enough, as long as the selinux-policy packages
are not supposed to own /etc/sysconfig/selinux.  But shouldn't they?

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2006-02-22 16:21:17 UTC
It probably should, even though this is an artifact of a much earlier version of
SELinux.  Now we tell people to use /etc/selinux/config.  I will add this to the
spec file.
