Description Murray McAllister 2009-03-09 00:24:22 EDT
Description of problem:
The output of "semanage boolean -l" contains the Boolean name instead of a description. Fedora 9 is probably near end of life so this may not be worth fixing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. semanage boolean -l | grep ftp
Actual results:
ftp_home_dir                   -> off   ftp_home_dir
allow_ftpd_full_access         -> off   allow_ftpd_full_access
ftpd_connect_db                -> off   ftpd_connect_db
allow_ftpd_use_nfs             -> off   allow_ftpd_use_nfs
allow_ftpd_anon_write          -> off   allow_ftpd_anon_write
tftp_anon_write                -> off   tftp_anon_write
allow_ftpd_use_cifs            -> off   allow_ftpd_use_cifs
httpd_enable_ftp_server        -> off   httpd_enable_ftp_server

Expected results:
ftp_home_dir                   -> off   Allow ftp to read and write files in the user home directories
allow_ftpd_full_access         -> off   Allow ftp servers to login to local users and read/write all files on the system, governed by DAC.
ftpd_connect_db                -> off   Allow ftp servers to use connect to mysql database
allow_ftpd_use_nfs             -> off   Allow ftp servers to use nfs for public file transfer services.
allow_ftpd_anon_write          -> off   Allow ftp servers to upload files,  used for public file transfer services. Directories must be labeled public_content_rw_t.
tftp_anon_write                -> off   Allow tftp to modify public files used for public file transfer services.
allow_ftpd_use_cifs            -> off   Allow ftp servers to use cifs for public file transfer services.
httpd_enable_ftp_server        -> off   Allow httpd to act as a FTP server by listening on the ftp port.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-03-09 09:51:27 EDT
I think we handle the boolean descriptions differently in F10 then in F9.  So I am going to close this as fixed in the next release.
