Description Valdis Kletnieks 2009-05-03 02:24:07 EDT
Description of problem:
the postinstall scriptlet of the RPM issues an odd error message:

semodule: failed with !

This is apparently due to a stray "" in the scriptlet.  'rpm -q scripts' shows this line (somewhat truncated):

( cd /usr/share/selinux/mls; 
semodule -b base.pp.bz2 -i ada.pp.bz2 cpufreqselector.pp.bz2 ...(lots of files skipped)...
zosremote.pp.bz2 pingd.pp.bz2 milter.pp.bz2 wm.pp.bz2  "" -s mls; 

Manually issuing that command generates the same message - removing the "" at the end fixes is.  Was the "" supposed to be wrapping a $something variable that got lost somewhere?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
