Name        : policycoreutils

Summary     : SELinux policy core utilities
Description :
Security-enhanced Linux is a feature of the Linux® kernel and a number
of utilities with enhanced security functionality designed to add
mandatory access controls to Linux.  The Security-enhanced Linux
kernel contains new architectural components originally developed to
improve the security of the Flask operating system. These
architectural components provide general support for the enforcement
of many kinds of mandatory access control policies, including those
based on the concepts of Type Enforcement®, Role-based Access
Control, and Multi-level Security.

policycoreutils contains the policy core utilities that are required
for basic operation of a SELinux system.  These utilities include
load_policy to load policies, setfiles to label filesystems, newrole
to switch roles.

Update Information:

 policycoreutils package which will stop running sepolgen-ifgen in post ,and when policy gets updated.  This will speed install  a little bit and eliminate one of the peak memory requirements. Tools that use the info will now regenerate if needed.

Remove require selinux-policy-doc.  Will get policy.xml for selinux-policy-devel.


This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update policycoreutils' at the command line.
