SELinux "Multiple same specifications" annoyance

Hello everyone!

My work pc is running FC6 and I have a recent "problem" with SELinux where it tells me at boot time the following:


Running Transaction Test

/etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: Multiple same specifications for /usr/lib/vlc/codec/
/etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: Multiple same specifications for /usr/lib/vlc/codec/

Finished Transaction Test
Transaction Test Succeeded


Anyone has a clue about what's going on here? My computer works fine, it's just annoying..

Thanks as usual!

It's a conflict between the VLC rpm and the SELinux policy for VLC. If you apply maintenance (yup update) the corrected policy will be loaded. You then just need to (as root):

semanage fcontext -d /usr/lib/vlc/codec/
semanage fcontext -d /usr/lib/vlc/codec/
This will remove the file context setting that was added by the vlc rpm (which should have been corrected by now). The details are in this bug.
