Could you make sure selinux-policy-targeted is installed?

Comment 2 Allan Kugel 2008-04-06 09:13:32 EDT
How do I do that?

When I chose the option "install [?over] existing system", the install process
didn't ask me to pick packages (which I found curious at the time) unless it
asked and then timed out (I had to leave the install unattended at one point).
Does "install [?using] existing system" use the existing package list, or
something else?

yum install selinux-policy-targeted
