Description of problem:
After selecting permissive/mls, setting /.autorelabel and reboot.  Then reboot
again to get "clean" record.  Get 21 avc denied messages during bootup/root

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2006-10-17 17:25:43 EDT
If you change a user from user_r to staff_r you need relabel the homedir 

restorecon -R -v /home should do the trick.

anacron.pid seems to have the incorrect context on it. Not sure how it got
created incorrectly but restorecon /var/run/anacron.pid

pcscd needs policy to work correctly.  Patches accepted :^)

multipath.stati looks like it needs a lvm_exec_t label on it?
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2006-10-25 13:53:51 EDT
Please retry with selinux-policy-2.4.1-4
Comment 5 Gene Czarcinski 2006-10-25 15:33:19 EDT
I assume that 2.4.1-4 will be in testing in a day or so ... 2.4.1-3 is there now.
Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2006-10-25 15:52:59 EDT
2.4.1-4 is out on my people page now.  Should be in BETA2 and rawhide.
Comment 7 Gene Czarcinski 2006-10-27 14:34:55 EDT
could not find it at http://people.redhat.com/dwalsh/  ... could you be mnore
specific as to where it is.

I would also appreciate it if this update was pushed to updates/testing (2.4.1-3
is there now).
Comment 8 Daniel Walsh 2007-08-22 10:17:30 EDT
Should be fixed in the current release
