Comment 2 Doncho Gunchev 2007-03-09 21:34:28 UTC
Looks like I was wrong about yum, it should be 
setroubleshoot-server-1.9.3-1.fc7. After the previous error I killed yum, 
rebuilt the rpm database (rpm --rebuilddb) and did 
a 'rpm -ihv /var/cache/yum/development/packages/*.rpm' - the same error. 
After 'service setroubleshoot stop; rpm --rebuilddb; setenforce 0' everything 
was fine (and just a bit faster).

Reassigning to setroubleshoot (I see no setroubleshoot-server), don't know 
about the Severity. Will attach screenshots.

successfull rpm -ihv...

after stopping setroubleshoot and setenforce 0 (just for sure) rpm -ihv
--replacepkgs ... succeeded.
