Description John W. Lockhart 2006-09-19 15:45:56 EDT
Description of problem:
restorecon does not print to stdout what it would save
to a file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
policycoreutils-1.18.1-4.9.i386

How reproducible:
On a RHEL4 system:
   rpm -ql xorg-x11-xfs | restorecon -n -v -f -
   (no output)
   rpm -ql xorg-x11-xfs | restorecon -n -v -o FOO -f -
   (no output)
   cat FOO
     /etc/X11/fs/config

Note also:
# rpm -V  xorg-x11-xfs
........C c /etc/X11/fs/config

# rpm -ql xorg-x11-xfs | restorecon -n -vv -f -
restorecon reset context
/etc/X11/fs/config:user_u:object_r:etc_t->system_u:object_r:etc_t

Steps to Reproduce:
See above
  
Actual results:
Hidden error

Expected results:

Names of files should appear on stdout when requested.
Prefer that the output be:
<path/filename> <expected context> <actual context>

And that the exit code be non-zero if unexpected contexts
are discovered.

(Note also that '-o -' creates a file named '-' rather than
writing to stdout.)
