Install selinux-policy-devel, will fix.

Comment 2 James Morris 2008-06-30 22:21:16 UTC
This is an admin tool, so it needs to work properly by default, not require
extra devel packages (unless this is installed by default?)

Also, the "description" field entries are too large to fit in the column format.
 There needs to be some way to see the full description (mouse-over popup, click
for more detail etc).

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-07-03 13:52:27 UTC
This is fixed in Rawhide.  selinux-policy-devel dissapears and becomes part of

I am working on a lockdown wizard which has a different look to it.
