Description Wart 2006-07-31 19:22:31 EDT
Description of problem:
When running 'fixfiles -R <packagename>' in an not-yet-published package that
I'm working on for Fedora Extras, I noticed that it now generates an error:

# /sbin/fixfiles -R cyphesis restore
/sbin/restorecon: invalid option -- q
usage:  /sbin/restorecon [-FnrRv] [-e excludedir ] [-o filename ] [-f filename |
pathname... ]

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'fixfiles -R ntp restore'.  Use any package you want for testing.
2. Look at the output of the command
Actual results:
Nothing is printed and files contexts are reset.

Expected results:
An error message is printed and file contexts are not changed:
# fixfiles -R ntp restore
/sbin/restorecon: invalid option -- q
usage:  /sbin/restorecon [-FnrRv] [-e excludedir ] [-o filename ] [-f filename |
pathname... ]

Additional info:

The extra '-q' seems to come from line 237 of /sbin/fixfiles:
237:     restore) restore -p -q ;;
