Bug Fix Advisory selinux-policy bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0561-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-07-26
Last updated on: 2010-07-26
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated selinux-policy packages that resolve an issue are now available.

The selinux-policy packages contain the rules that govern how confined processes
run on the system.

These updated selinux-policy packages fix the following bug:

* after upgrading to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5, the Xen hypervisor was unable
to auto-start domains linked to in the /etc/xen/auto/ directory. This was caused
by the default Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 SELinux policy preventing the xm
daemon from reading the symlinks in the /etc/xen/auto directory, with the result
that the xm daemon could not start the virtual guests. These updated
selinux-policy packages contain an updated SELinux policy that allows the xm
daemon to correctly read the symbolic links in /etc/xen/auto. The xm service is
now able to auto-start virtual guests upon system startup. (BZ#617169)

All users of selinux-policy are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which resolve this issue.
