Description Mark Huth 2006-05-14 21:38:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Files that are dynamically created as part of the package installation process
are not cleaned up on package removal.  If you install the
selinux-policy-targeted-sources rpm and then uninstall it (even without
modifying any files) files are left behind in /etc/selinux/targeted/src.  Bug or

How reproducible:
ls /etc/selinux/targeted (no 'src' directory)
rpm -i selinux-policy-targeted-sources
rpm -e selinux-policy-targeted-sources
ls /etc/selinux/targeted ('src' is still there)
