Problem does not exists in selinux-policy-mls-2.4.6-9.el5
Comment 2 George C. Wilson 2006-12-11 15:43:49 EST
OK, I'll give it a shot and tell my team to move up.
Comment 3 Linda Knippers 2006-12-11 15:49:53 EST
I saw that problem too but the newer policy seems to fix it.
Comment 4 George C. Wilson 2006-12-12 14:23:53 EST
I just installed selinux-policy-mls-2.4.6-9.el5 from your people page, Dan. I
still get the same behavior. I relabeled and everything. This is on ppc64. Mike
saw the same thing on x86_64. Should I try the rawhide policy?
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2006-12-12 14:52:51 EST
Are you sure your update was successful?  I am not seeing this here. And I know
this has been fixed
