Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 372851
system-config-selinux needs a package of its own
Last modified: 2008-09-10 12:04:17 EDT
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):
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*
system-config-selinux.i386 or something
Please put selinux in a package by its name.
Not all system-config-* apps there own rpm matching the 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.
