Description Alex Kanavin 2009-03-23 16:04:40 EDT
When booting the latest rawhide iso in rescue mode the mount seems to mess up SELinux labels. If I reboot after the rescue-mode mount, there's a ton of permission denied messsages and the system hangs. Things work just far enough to boot in single mode and run

$ restorecon -v -R /

and then it works again. Restorecon prints a few messages like

restorecon reset / context system_u:-object_r:mnt_t:s0 -> system_u:-object_r:root_t:s0

The problem persists in F11 Beta.
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2009-04-16 09:37:27 EDT
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.  Thanks for the bug report.
Comment 3 Alex Kanavin 2009-04-22 16:07:38 EDT
I just tried today's iso image (anaconda and instead of just failing, the boot proceeds to relabel the entire drive, which takes quite some time.
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2009-04-22 17:23:42 EDT
Yes, that's the fix.  We don't know what you've done and what files you've changed, so we will have to force a restorecon on reboot.
