Description Michal Trunecka 2013-08-07 05:55:35 EDT
Description of problem:
The directories listed in /etc/selinux/fixfiles_exclude_dirs are excluded only when fixfiles is called without defining particualr directory to relabel.

e.g. If /var/log is listed as excluded, then it is excluded only when called

# fixfiles ceck/restore/relabel/verify

but not when called

# fixfiles ceck/restore/relabel/verify /var

Which I would expect. The exclusion even works with -C option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Expected results:
Config file exclusion works in both cases or documentation is altered to make this clear.
