rpm -ivvvh -p xguest-1.0.8-3.el6.noarch.rpm

Moving back to ASSIGNED, I see this bug when testing @everything install using RHEL6.0-20100226.5 build (s390x arch) with xguest-1.0.8-3.el6.noarch.rpm and policycoreutils-python-2.0.78-11.el6.s390x.

Installing SDL-devel-1.2.13-11.el6.s390x
Installing xguest-1.0.8-3.el6.noarch
/usr/sbin/semanage: No such file or directory
error: %pre(xguest-1.0.8-3.el6.noarch) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

Manual installation in chroot also failed, see attachment.

This is what I get when running semanage manually:
sh-4.1# which semanage 
sh-4.1# semanage user -a -S targeted -P xguest -R xguest_r xguest_u
sh-4.1# semanage boolean -m -S targeted -F /dev/stdin
/usr/sbin/semanage: No such file or directory
Comment 13 Daniel Walsh 2010-03-02 09:15:25 EST
I am not sure why this is not working.

xguest(pre) requires polycoreutils-sandbox Which requires policycoreutils-python which includes semanage?

Bill do you have any idea?
Comment 14 Marian Ganisin 2010-03-02 09:54:26 EST
File /dev/stdin doesn't exist (in installation environment), this seems to be the cause:

# semanage boolean -m -S targeted -F /dev/stdin
/usr/sbin/semanage: No such file or directory
# touch dummy-file
# semanage boolean -m -S targeted -F dummy-file
# semanage boolean -m -S targeted -F fake-file
/usr/sbin/semanage: No such file or directory
# ls /dev/stdin fake-file dummy-file
ls: cannot access /dev/stdin: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access fake-file: No such file or directory
Comment 15 Daniel Walsh 2010-03-02 10:24:17 EST
Thanks, I was totally reading this wrong...

If I change this to /proc/self/0, will it work?  Does this file exist?
Comment 16 Daniel Walsh 2010-03-02 10:42:16 EST
I guess the bug might be, why doesn't /dev/stdin exist?
Comment 17 Daniel Walsh 2010-03-02 10:49:52 EST
Fixed in xguest-1.0.8-4.el6

Although this might be covering up a different bug.
Comment 18 Bill Nottingham 2010-03-02 13:02:48 EST
/dev/stdin is created by the start_udev wrapper script; udev is started without the wrapper by the installer.
Comment 23 Miroslav Vadkerti 2010-03-10 08:44:06 EST
This still fails in xguest-1.0.8-4.rhel6 (dependecy missed?):

Comment 24 Miroslav Vadkerti 2010-03-10 08:46:39 EST
semanage is a part of policycoreutils-python
Comment 25 Daniel Walsh 2010-03-10 10:08:27 EST
semanage is putting out a bogus error message that leads you to think the semanage package is not installed.

It is complaining about /proc/self/0  Which should have been /proc/self/fd/0
Fixed in xguest-1.0.8-5.el6
