FEDORA-2015-8908

bugfix update in Fedora 21 for libselinux

Status: stable 3 years ago

2.3-9 simplified the method for is_selinux_enabled() to be faster and doesn't create deadlocks. This change broke systems with SELinux enabled but without selinux-policy package installed. This update adds a check of existence of /etc/selinux/config. In case there's no such file in a system, SELinux is considered disabled even if it's running on SELinux enabled kernel.

How to install

sudo dnf upgrade --advisory=FEDORA-2015-8908
