Description Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2006-06-18 16:03:06 EDT
Description of problem:

  "getsebool" prints the bools as being "on" or "off", but "setsebool" only
accepts the values "false" (aka "0") and "true" (aka "1").

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


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "getsebool allow_execstack".
2. Read "allow_execstack --> on" (or "off").
3. Run "setsebool allow_execstack=on" (or "off") to set it to the very same
value the bool already has.
Actual results:

  setsebool: illegal value on for boolean allow_execstack

Expected results:

  setsebool should just quietly set the value.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2006-06-19 10:29:55 EDT
Fixed in policycoreutils-1.30.14-2 in rawhide.  This will be backported to FC5
if we need to update policycoreutils in the future.  Not worth doing it for this
minor change.
