Crash blocked F19 upgrade
Last modified: 2013-05-29 17:26:46 EDT
Today I attempted to upgrade my F18 system to the latest pre-F19 snapshot.
I used the "yum distro-sync" apprach.
About 10% into the yum transaction, it stopped, and it looks like it stopped because of a crash in policycoreutils.
I have a full directory, as created by abrt, if you want it, let me know.
A few pieces from it:
/usr/bin/python -Es /usr/sbin/semanage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/libffmpegsumo.so.0.0.0
20a7b88131f2524123d1ac100683751417db4970 0x16 swig_import_helper /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/selinux/__init__.py -
20a7b88131f2524123d1ac100683751417db4970 0x1a <module> /usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/selinux/__init__.py -

f73c90a461c3223987d4be75eaa962e0112f7809 0x19 <module> /usr/sbin/semanage -
Note, this system had selinux disabled.
I have no idea why this would block the update. I think it is probably a red herring. The tools that is shipping libffmpegsumo.so.0.0.0 is not checking if SElinux is enabled which is potentially causing the error. I would report a bug to them.
This command blowing up in a post install would not stop the update.
