Description of problem:

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


How reproducible:

Have a previous version of s-c-securitylevel installed. Upgrade to a newer
version from repo using yum.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. grab updates via pup or yum (pup used mainly)
2.check all rpms after updates using rpm -qaV |grep missing >rpm-missing.txt as
root user. (Regular user misses files not visible to a regular user)
3. review the output of rpm-missing.txt file for results
Actual results:

Found missing files. Confirmed individually, see below results:
rpm -qV system-config-securitylevel
missing     /usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/checklist.pyc
missing     /usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/firstboot_selinux.pyc
missing     /usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/scs_checklist.pyc
missing     /usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/securitylevel.pyc
missing     /usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/selinuxPage.pyc
missing   /usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/system-config-securitylevel.pyc
missing     /usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/trustedchecklist.pyc

Expected results:
The rpm to be intact.

Additional info:

rpms, the below points were mentioned on the list. I have noticed the missing
files and just took actions to install the rpm using yum after removing the
package and reinstalling it.

The reply following this posting  by Michal seems to reveal this is a packaging
error caused by scriptlet errors yum runs during cleanup. The *.pyc files are
