Description H.J. Lu 2008-06-30 06:00:25 UTC
I disabled selinux before creating a few files with
security context. patch-2.5.4-34.fc9.x86_64 failed
with

patch: **** Can't set security context on file
gcc/testsuite/g++.dg/abi/mangle24.C : Operation not permitted

when it tries to patch the file when it was created
with security context. The previous patch works fine.
Why can't patch create a new file without security
context when selinux is disabled?

Hmm, the man page says that we're meant to get ENOTSUP in that situation, but
instead we're getting EPERM.  OK, will work around.

Yes,  I am using a locally built rpm I rebuilt from your sources to address
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=453365.

I haven't checked the details of your patch, but it at least got me going again.
