My question is somewhat off topic, but I hope that it can nevertheless
be indulged. Some time ago, SELinux packages for RHEL 3 had been
available on people.redhat.com
. I successfully installed SELinux on
several RHEL 3 systems using these packages. However, the packages
that currently reside there don't work under RHEL 3. I've tried
various cheats, such as using FC 2 packages, compiling source RPMs,
etc. But, so far, everything I've tried is no-go for at least some of
the necessary packages.
Do RHEL 3 packages for SELinux currently exist? If so, where can they
be obtained? If not, must we wait for RHEL 4 to obtain compatible
SELinux packages? Or, is there a chance of another experimental
release for RHEL 3?
I myself don't mind hacking the SRPMs or whatever a bit. But, the
available packages seem to be bound to a variety of versions of
automake and autoconf. Hence, it's very troublesome to coax all of
them into compiling on the same host <g>. The coreutils package is
especially troublesome; if SELinux packages aren't available I suspect
that I'll have to patch the RHEL 3 coreutils sources. But I can't see
when I'll have time to do so <g>. So, any pointers are most welcome!
No I was attempting to keep them current, but eventually the FC versions
changed to much to keep doing. There will be RHEL 4 Alpha and Betas
available soon, but most of those are based off of FC2. Also
installing new kernels and SELinux on RHEL 3 is not supported.
