Comment 1 John Dennis 2007-03-06 22:28:26 UTC
The config file changed and rpm did not replace it, but rather left it as
/etc/setroubleshoot/setroubleshoot.cfg.rpmnew. Please copy or rename
setroubleshoot.cfg.rpmnew to setroubleshoot.cfg, that should fix the problem as
a quick workaround, in the mean time I'll make sure rpm replaces the file but
leaves the old one a .rpmsave

You'll have to restart things again.

service setroubleshoot restart
sealert -q
sealert -s

If that does not fix the problem for you let me know. Thanks.

Comment 2 Deji Akingunola 2007-03-07 01:21:33 UTC
It seems rpm actually replaced etroubleshoot.cfg for me as I don't have
etc/setroubleshoot/setroubleshoot.cfg.rpmnew; I checked the timestamp on the
file, and it look like the right one:
[deji@agape ~]$ ll /etc/setroubleshoot/setroubleshoot.cfg
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5007 2007-03-05 18:42 /etc/setroubleshoot/setroubleshoot.cfg

This bug is stale, and is most like fixed by now, no?
