Poor error when loading policy module
I'm updating a custom policy from CentOS 5 to CentOS 6. The module builds
successfully, but fails to load:
# semodule -i mypolicy.pp
/etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: Invalid argument
libsemanage.semanage_install_active: setfiles returned error code 1.
It took me some time to work out that the error should have read:
File context already exists for /var/run/passenger: mypolicy.fc line 5
Now that I know there is already policy for Passenger, I can adjust mine
accordingly. Any chance of getting a more helpful version of the error
included in semodule?
