FAQ doesn't mention required package checkpolicy
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
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):
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:
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.
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?
Yes; please do mention the package by name; I had tried searching for package
names containing "selinux" and that didn't find it. Thanks.
Fixed in rawhide.
