Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:07:12 EST
Description of problem:
when trying to open an encrypted file sytem with luksOpen it fails with an
segmentation fault when using a xen-kernel (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6xen). there is no
problem with the standard kernel (same release). don't know if this is may xen
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda9 data-crypt
enter the passphrase
Steps to Reproduce:
1.cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda9 data-crypt
2.enter the passphrase
successfully unlock the first slot and and create a dm mapping
This is because it statically links against libselinux, which at the time it was
built had a broken matchpathcon() function. Fixed in rawhide.
Re-opening because this bug is against FC6 not rawhide & no errata has been made
available for either FC6 updates or updates-testing.

Will there be an errata for FC6? I cannot do anything about this, maybe someone
from Redhat will stand in? Peter Jones is afaik too busy to do it.
A new release of cryptsetup-luks is now available for FC6 (1.0.3-2.3.fc6), this
should fix this issue, please reopen this bug, when it is not the case.
