Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:42:17 EST
Description of problem:
Running with default selinux targeted policies, while running livecd-creator,
the system hangs. The system was running firefox, evolution and the
setroubleshoot warns me a few times during the livecd-creator process.
livcecd-creator downloads packages, installs them, warnings start and near the
end of install packages the system hangs and I have to reset the machine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install fedora 9 using default selinux options.
run: livecd-creator --config=liveusb-f9.ks --fslabel=myfedora
System hangs during livecd-creator process, during package install.
livecd-creator process sucessfully finishs.
Attachments contain two selinux warnings registered by selinuxtroubleshooter.

You must put the machine in permissive mode while using livecd creator. We are
working hard to fix this problem.
Steps to create the livecd
Sometimes you might require a reboot.
Thank you for your quick response. I linked this bug wih #429813 since they seem
to be related. I didn't link it to #445630 since I do think that livecd-creator
should work under targeted selinux policies.
SELinux policy has been updated to handle this. A patch has been submitted to
livecd to handle this properly.
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.3.1-72.fc9.noarch
livecd-tools for F9 has been pushed and rawhide is in git -- testers from git
appreciated as more indicators to do a rawhide build. Worst case, I'll be doing
one the end of next week for the alpha freeze
