strange output when installing dropbox.

When I tried to install the latest version of dropbox the system initially declined citing the fact that it was alreay installed and does not update installed pacvkage.

But since my dropbox was not found and failing on boot up, I thought it a good idea to reinstall dropbox.

I did.

This is the repsonse:

 Installing : dropbox-1.1.27-2.el6.rf.x86_64                                                                                                                                                                                            1/1 
Non-fatal POSTIN scriptlet failure in rpm package dropbox-1.1.27-2.el6.rf.x86_64
/usr/bin/chcon: can't apply partial context to unlabeled file `/etc/init.d/dropbox'
/usr/bin/chcon: can't apply partial context to unlabeled file `/etc/sysconfig/dropbox'

  Verifying  : dropbox-1.1.27-2.el6.rf.x86_64                                                                                                                                                                                            1/1 

  dropbox.x86_64 0:1.1.27-2.el6.rf                                                                                                                                                                                                           

Now it installs, but not without a warning.

What does warning: %post(dropbox-1.1.27-2.el6.rf.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1 mean?

it seems to install everything ok, but it still shows this warning?

My system in Centos 6.5, 64 bit.

What is it saying?

This does not occur when installing other rpm files.

I'm not 100% sure but a package might be broken-

Did you get your dropbox package from a trusted source?

--Until another member with Centos experience chimes in try here.--
Sorry I am not running Centos:-
