Description Paul Moore 2006-09-26 11:36:00 EDT
Description of problem:
A patchset has been accepted into the net-2.6 git tree for the 2.6.19 kernel
which fixes several critical NetLabel bugs as well changes the kernel-userspace
interface used by NetLabel.  These patches should be backported into the latest
FC6/RHEL5 kernels for compatiability reasons.

Comment 1 Eric Paris 2006-09-26 17:22:08 EDT
It appears I also needed the patch sets


for these fixes.   I'm building a kernel now for testing, should have something
up tomorrow on my people page for others.
