Description Bruno Wolff III 2006-04-08 18:06:40 EDT
Description of problem:
The following output of "man booleans" is incorrect as far as I can tell:
These  default  values can be overridden at boot-time based on the set-
tings in the /etc/selinux/SELINUXTYPE/booleans file, where  SELINUXTYPE
is  the  type of policy currently being run on the system as defined in
the /etc/selinux/config  file.   The  system-config-securitylevel  tool
provides  an  interface  for  altering  the settings in this file.

There is no file named /etc/selinux/SELINUXTYPE/booleans on my fc5 systems.
And you can't use system-config-securitylevel from a shell prompt in a terminal
window to edit selinux settings. (Which I reported as a separate bug, assuming
that it is supposed to allow that.)

Comment 1 Bruno Wolff III 2006-04-08 18:25:15 EDT
The man page also omits saying that setsebool -P can be used to set booleans
persistantly (accross reboots).
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2006-04-11 14:57:11 EDT
Fixed in 1.30.1-2 in rawhide.

Next time I update FC5 with the tool chain I will put this fix in it.
