Description Jeff Bastian 2008-01-15 17:24:06 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #181752 +++

Description of problem:
/etc/sysconfig/selinux is created as a symlink to /etc/selinux/config.

sysreport/sosreport captures this absolute symlink and can confuse the person
looking at the report (me!) when the sestatus output doesn't match

I'll try to get into the habit of looking at /etc/selinux/config instead, but as
long as the symlink is there, it should be a relative symlink.

This has been fixed in newer versions of the policy.  Please backport it to RHEL

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 4.6 selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.149
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2008-08-01 10:31:12 EDT
Not worth the backport.  We do not intend to update RHEL4 policy.
