Description of problem:

When tried to open compiled policy.conf from selinux-policy-2.4.6-30.el5.src.rpm
with apol the following error occured

The selected file does not appear to be a valid SELinux Policy.

Error opening policy: Input/output error.

And in console:

tmp/rolemap.conf:624:ERROR 'syntax error' at token 'ntfs-3g' on line 1563798:

genfscon ntfs-3g / system_u:object_r:dosfs_t

genfscon msdos / system_u:object_r:dosfs_t

2. Open policy.conf

Actual results:
apol can't open policy.conf 

Expected results:

Additional info:
As  explained Chris PeBenito in fedora-selinux-list@redhat.com

Just like the checkpolicy/checkmodule parser, the setools parser had to

be updated, and this happened in setools 3.0.1.
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-07-21 19:10:31 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".

Any chance at getting movement on this?
Comment 15 Daniel Walsh 2013-03-19 10:12:44 EDT
This seems to have gotten lost in the weeds, I think we should just say this is fixed in RHEL6.
