Description of problem:
We need something that's managed with the package, whose files
we are pre-creating - not with selinux. We need to be doing
creation and relabel at install time, not at login shell time.

Comment 1 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-11-10 16:27:14 UTC
This bug refers to the /etc/profile.d/ script, which is a (necessary)
hack, that should be eradicated in the long term, and replaced with a per
package solution of some kind.

A related item is the need to pre-create /tmp folders that are not "owned" by a
particular user (like .*-unix). The script does not work for those,
because it's a profile script. Those folders can be erased on a tmpfs /tmp, and
need to be re-created before anything starts using them, mis-setting the
context. This seems to imply that we need a boot time script for selinux as well.

restorecond can do this.
