Description Milan Zázrivec 2008-05-23 09:09:19 EDT
Description of problem:
inn package should own following directories:

Currently inn owns files under them, not the directories themselves.
This setup leads to these directories being mislabeled (selinux contexts).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
inn-2.4.3-6.fc6 / RHEL5.2 GA

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5.2, inn package included, selinux enabled
2. # rpm -qf /usr/lib/news/bin /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/resolv \
3. # ls -dZ /usr/lib/news/bin /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/resolv \
4. # matchpathcon /usr/lib/news/bin /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/resolv \
Actual results:
# rpm -qf /usr/lib/news/bin /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/resolv \
file /usr/lib/news/bin is not owned by any package
file /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/resolv is not owned by any package
file /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/passwd is not owned by any package
# ls -dZ /usr/lib/news/bin /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/resolv \
drwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:lib_t:s0       /usr/lib/news/bin
drwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:lib_t:s0       /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/passwd
drwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:lib_t:s0       /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/resolv
# matchpathcon /usr/lib/news/bin /usr/lib/news/bin/auth/resolv \
/usr/lib/news/bin       system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0
/usr/lib/news/bin/auth/resolv   system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0
/usr/lib/news/bin/auth/passwd   system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0

Additional info:
Low priority, unlikely to cause any harm.
Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2008-07-10 12:12:08 EDT
Thanks for report, actually more dirs should be owned by quota. All fixed in
rawhide, inn-2.4.5-2.fc10.
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2008-07-10 12:12:53 EDT
sorry, I meant inn of course (faster fingers than brain).
Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-07-21 19:02:02 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
