Description Stephen P. Schaefer 2006-04-17 18:06:05 EDT
Description of problem:

The FC5 selinux FAQ does not mention the "checkpolicy" package, which was not
installed during an attempted reconstruction of an everything install with the
interactive installer.  It took me quite a while to discover that checkpolicy
this was the package containing the "checkmodule" command.

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

How reproducible:

Read the FAQ.  Try to run "audit2allow" as specified.  Get
"/usr/bin/audit2allow: sh: checkmodule: command not found".  Have no clue where
to find that command.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Comment 1 Stephen P. Schaefer 2006-04-17 18:13:44 EDT
It occurs to me, since "audit2allow -M" requires checkmodule, perhaps the
policycoreutils RPM (containing audit2allow) should require the checkpolicy RPM
(containing checkmodule) to be loaded as well.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2006-04-19 10:56:17 EDT
I am changing audit2allow to report an error when you use the -M qualifier and
you don't have checkmodule installed.  This will tell you which package to
install.  I don't really want to include this package by default, since
policycoreutils is on mininmal installs.

Does that sound acceptable?
Comment 3 Stephen P. Schaefer 2006-04-19 13:19:13 EDT
Yes; please do mention the package by name; I had tried searching for package
names containing "selinux" and that didn't find it.  Thanks.
