Description Daniel Walsh 2009-01-06 14:19:15 EST
Description of problem:

A couple of customers are switching from targeted policy to MLS policy.  The mechanism to do this is to change the /etc/selinux/config file, touch /.autorelabel; reboot

/etc/rc.sysinit sees the flag file and attempts to relabel the system, but it does not change labels on user homedirectories if the user componant "unconfined_u" is the only section of the file context that has changed.  Adding the -F flag forces the relabel of all files.
