fc3 update: reboots with many errors


I'm using FC3 and just completed the update using the "up2date"
process. Here, I only performed "binaries' updates" excluding the
"source rpm" downloads.

However, when the system is rebooted, I get the following errors
during the boot:

(just after the linux partitions detected)
unknown boolean httpd_tty_comm
unknown allow_execmod
unknown allow_execmem

(many lines of these errors with different line numbers)
/etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: line 978 has invalid
context system_u: object_r: texrel_shlib_t

/etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: line 991 has invalid
context root: object_r: texrel_shlib_t

Further, when I looked at the system logs, I got the following errors:

Boot Log:
localhost nfslock: lockd shutdown failed

Kernel Startup Log:
driver failed to call pci_enable_device()

Security Log:
localhost sshd[3017]: error: Bind to port 22 on failed: Address
already in use.

System Log:
localhost kernel: There is already a security framework initialized,
register_security failed.

localhost kernel: vesafb: probe of vesafb0 failed with error -6

X.Org X11 Log:
(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)

(WW) RADEON(0): Failed to detect secondary monitor, MergedFB/Clone
mode disabled

drmOpenDevice: Open failed

4343 X: client 5 rejected from local host

So, I'd like to know how I can get rid of these errors during the boot,
and would also like to know if I should download the source rpms.

If I need to download source rpms, should I restart the update process
all over again, or I can just download the source rpms since I already
patched up the updates? If I need to apply the source rpms on top of
the patch updates, how do I go about this?

Did you ever get an answer on this issue??? I am experiencing the same error message. I tried commenting the texrel_shlib lines out but then received some from several lines earlier with winlib. I as well didn't receive these errors until after I ran yum update. So obviously there was an update to either the Kernel or some other program file that causes this.
Does anyone have a solution for this?????

Nevermind my last entry. I found a solution to this problem here:

Basically the fix is to run
make -C /etc/selinux/targeted/src/policy clean
make -C /etc/selinux/targeted/src/policy load

That fixes the issue.

Hi mheidsick,

Thanks for your feedback. I'll be mindful of your
suggestion in my future updates as I reinstalled
FC3 from scratch.

mheidsick's suggestion works! Thanks.
