Description Michael Waite 2007-07-30 19:23:11 UTC
Update 5 has changed the restorecon utility that HIP uses to label files.
Here is an example invokation:
[root@jahnighthawk log]# /sbin/restorecon -f -  -e /selinux -e
/var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs -e /proc -e /sys
/sbin/restorecon: invalid option -- e
usage:  /sbin/restorecon [-Rnv] [-f filename | pathname... ]
This is a correct invocation according to the man page, but the update 5 
version doesn't accept the -e option.
