Description Mads Kiilerich 2011-08-25 13:17:52 UTC
AFAICS there is no tracking of this in bugzilla:

Every time livecd-tools is run this is shown:

  Installing: selinux-policy-targeted      ##################### [725/764]
SELinux:  Could not downgrade policy file /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.26, searching for an older version.
SELinux:  Could not open policy file <= /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.26:  No such file or directory
load_policy:  Can't load policy:  No such file or directory

SE generally seems to work ... probably because of the precompiled policy?

I don't know if livecd-tools should do some more tricks or if SE should be changed or the warnings hould be muted ... but something should be done.


Same kernel and policy version is running on the build host and in the image it is building. Enforcing is permissive.

Have you tried Rawhide livecd-tools?

Comment 2 Mads Kiilerich 2011-08-25 14:49:49 UTC
I confirm that it works there.

So this is another bug that will be fixed by the livecd-tools update, and you recommend doing the backport ASAP?
