Description Matthew Booth 2010-05-19 09:59:12 UTC
If a conversion upgrades SELinux, SELinux itself will be mislabelled. If the guest boots with SELinux in enforcing mode, autorelabel will fail because /lib/libselinux.so.1 cannot be read.

If the guest has SELinux in enforcing mode, we need to set it to permissive mode to do the relabel, and put it back afterwards, presumably in rc.local.

Hi Matt,

How would I reproduce it? I cannot reproduce it via 2 senarios:
1. Convert a guest registered to rhn
2. Upgrade SELinux
