Description Dominick Grift 2010-05-10 17:45:49 UTC
I noticed that there appears to be some incorrect information in the Security-Enhanced Linux User guide located at: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-user-guide/f12/en-US/index.html

In section 5.1, it states that "semanage" is part of the policycoreutils package.   This should instead read the "policycoreutils-python".  Further, if a user installs in text mode with minimal packages, they will not get the policycoreutils-python package installed by default.  Please see the excerpts below.

This issue also affects the selinux-user-guide for el6 ofcourse

Comment 2 Scott Radvan 2010-05-10 22:25:41 UTC
Have edited trunk for both Fedora 13 and EL6 in SVN to look like:

In Fedora, the SELinux packages are installed by default in a full installation, unless they are manually excluded during installation. If performing a minimal installation in text mode, the policycoreutils-python package will not be installed by default. Also, by default, SELinux targeted policy is used, and SELinux runs in enforcing mode. The following is a brief description of the main SELinux packages:

policycoreutils-python: provides utilities such as semanage, audit2allow, audit2why and chcat, for operating and managing SELinux.

policycoreutils: provides utilities such as restorecon, secon, setfiles, semodule, load_policy, and setsebool, for operating and managing SELinux. 

Looks OK?

Looks fine to me. Thanks
