This patch should fix the issue by removing [ ] from around selinuxenabled
Description of problem:
When installing an updated selinux-policy-targeted on a system which has selinux disabled, the following error is displayed:
SELinux: Could not downgrade policy file /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.24, searching for an older version.
SELinux: Could not open policy file <= /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.24: No such file or directory
load_policy: Can't load policy: No such file or directory
This error is displayed as the rpm is attempting to run load_policy when a policy cannot be loaded. This can be a confusing error for people who do not have selinux enabled, but are installing each update as it is released.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.7.19-126.el6
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a minimal system
2. Ensure getenforce reports 'Disabled'
3. Update selinux-policy-targeted
4. See error produced by the process
The package installs but an error is produced causing concern where none need be given.
The package should install without producing an error so that, if in the future selinux is enabled, the system can be up to date.
Additional info: the attached patch should resolve the problem
I can confirm this bug.
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.7.19-132.el6
