Description archimerged Ark submedes 2008-03-26 19:35:46 EDT
Description of problem:
tmpwatch gets SE linux audit, looks like /var/lib/texmf/tex has the wrong
context.  No doubt this really belongs on another component, but I don't know
which and the RPM database seems to be broken in F9beta, so I can't tell who
owns /var/lib/texmf/tex.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux beta.localnet 2.6.25-0.121.rc5.git4.fc9 #1 SMP Fri Mar 14 23:14:20 EDT
2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:
it just happens, when tmpwatch runs.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install F9beta, including the three package choices productivity,
programming, webserver.
2.  Get it running.  Wait for tmpwatch to run.
3.  Or just ls --lcontext /var/lib/texmf
Actual results:
Get SE Linux error.  /var/lib/texmf/tex has different context from other files
in /var/lib/texmf.

Expected results:
No error.

On another box (the first has flaky hardware, got RPM database corruption)
I can see that this bug belongs with texlive-texmf-2007-17.  The subdirectories
of /var/lib/texmf belong to that package, but the directory itself has no owner
package.  Setting it's context fell through the cracks.

Ok, I run restorecon in %post now, so the SELinux context should be fine since
