Some minor issues in selinux user guide
Last modified: 2015-04-06 23:19:30 EDT
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
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 fine to me. Thanks
pushed to website for f13, changed in el6 source, closing
thanks for the report!
