Description Lutz Lange 2007-11-09 10:15:28 EST
Description of problem:
system-config-selinux breaks the chain. Other system-config-tools are packages
on their own. Because of this system-config-selinux is kind of hard to find.

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

How reproducible:
if you dont know that what the tool is actually called it is easy to miss and
hard to find the right package.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum list system-config*
Actual results:

Expected results:
system-config-selinux.i386 or something

Additional info:
Please put selinux in a package by its name.

Not all system-config-* apps there own rpm matching the name.

But you'll have to agree, that there is some wisdom in using system-config-* as a package name. I think pointing to other exceptions is not a strong argument. 

Where or who could make a general decision to putting all system-config tools in packages by their names?

That's fine but bring it up for discussion on the fedora-devel list.

system-config-selinux is really the gui for policycoreutils, hense it is in policycoreutils-gui package.

You can install a package by executing

yum install /usr/bin/system-config-selinux

And it will find the correct package.
