Description Jeff Bastian 2008-03-09 11:59:31 EDT
Description of problem:
On Fedora 9 Alpha, after doing a 'yum update' and getting
kernel-2.6.25-0.101.rc.git3.fc9, my system panics when booting.  It appears
SELinux is preventing init from mounting /proc and /selinux.

If I reboot back into 2.6.24-2.fc9, it works fine, or if I boot
2.6.25-0.101.rc4.git3.fc9 with selinux=0, it works fine (but then I have to
re-label of course).

I'll attach a screenshot of the panic.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 9 Alpha
2. yum update 'kernel*' 'selinux*'
3. Reboot
Actual results:
kernel panics on boot

Expected results:
Kernel boots

Comment 2 Jeff Bastian 2008-03-11 14:40:50 EDT
I've updated to kernel-2.6.25-0.105.rc5.fc9 and now instead of getting a kernel
panic, I get
  init: Error on control socket: Permission denied
printed in an endless loop.

If I boot with 'selinux=0' on the kernel command line, it boots fine.

I still have selinux-policy-3.3.1-12.fc9.noarch.

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.3.1-13.fc9.noarch
