Description Martin Poole 2007-04-18 13:49:35 UTC
Description of problem:

Appears to be missing a dependency on sed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

/sbin/fixfiles calls sed, while policycoreutils which provides fixfiles, does
not require it. This causes errors during system installation in the
install.log, causing post-install scripts to fail.

Since fixfiles calls sed directly, it really should reflect this requirement in
the policycoreutils rpm.

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

/sbin/fixfiles is a script .. it calls sed ...

diff_filecontext() {
if [ -f ${PREFC} -a -x /usr/bin/diff ]; then
       TEMPFILE=`mktemp ${FC}.XXXXXXXXXX`
       test -z "$TEMPFILE" && exit
       sed -r -e 's,:s0, ,g' $PREFC | sort -u > ${PREFCTEMPFILE}
