There is an ordering/precedence among the different kinds of file
contexts configurations, with the base file_contexts generated from the
module .fc files at the lowest priority, the file_context.homedirs file
generated by genhomedircon as the next priority, and the
file_contexts.local file as the highest priority.
So a module .fc file can be overridden by the genhomedircon-generated
entries or by the local file contexts added via semanage fcontext -a.
Sounds like you should be using semanage fcontext -a for this instead of
Yes, yes it does. Thanks for the explanation.
