Description Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2013-03-21 21:33:12 UTC
selinux maintainers:

from this patch:

our libselinux-2.1.12 is missing at least this part:

to fix:

this makes fixing bug 462538 that much harder...
thanks for looking into it!

Meh, the patch doesn't apply on our (mainly upstream) libselinux. I'll add in the part you mentioned.
Comment 2 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-03-26 20:15:16 UTC
sys-libs/libselinux-2.1.12-r3 currently in hardened-development overlay with mentioned patch. I'll run a few tests before moving to main tree (still have to test the new udev referenced in bug #462538 as well)
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2013-03-26 20:22:24 UTC
Thanks Sven. 

You can try udev-199 or udev-9999 directly. Don't waste your time with 197 or 198.
Comment 4 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-03-29 09:20:50 UTC
Booted up successfully with udev-9999; once udev was started the contexts seem to be ok for most devices. A few are left, but I think those are from lvm utilities, not udev (/dev/mapper/*). I've created bug #463690 for this as it is most likely a policy-only issue.

sys-libs/libselinux-2.1.12-r3 is in tree, ~arch'ed for now
