Description Bill Nottingham 2007-06-18 11:39:43 EDT
Description of problem:

If I (for example) pungi a tree with no SELinux policy included, anaconda fails
to load the policy. It then turns off the SELINUX flag in the loader... but
never propagates it to the second stage.

So, the installer allows you to configure SELinux for the installed system, and
sets it up by default. Which then fails pretty spectacularly on reboot.

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

F7

The loader was passing, we just stopped looking at it in anaconda.  Fixed in CVS
