PostPosted: Sun Sep 29, 2013 8:39 pm    Post subject: [Solved] Installing SELinux Reply with quote

I am trying to install SELinux on a fresh install following this guide:

However, when I get up to 1.b. Configure SELinux, I am having trouble. When I try to emerge checkpolicy and policycoreutils, I get a circular dependency that I don't know how to resolve.

[nomerge       ] sys-apps/policycoreutils-2.1.14-r2  USE="pam -audit -dbus -sesandbox"
[ebuild  N     ]  dev-python/sepolgen-1.1.9-r2  359 kB
[ebuild  N     ]   sec-policy/selinux-base-2.20130424-r2  USE="open_perms peer_perms ubac -doc -unconfined" 880 kB
[ebuild  N     ]    sys-apps/policycoreutils-2.1.14-r2  USE="pam -audit -dbus -sesandbox" 1,663 kB

Total: 3 packages (3 new), Size of downloads: 2,902 kB

 * Error: circular dependencies:

(dev-python/sepolgen-1.1.9-r2::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) depends on
 (sec-policy/selinux-base-2.20130424-r2::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) (buildtime)
  (sys-apps/policycoreutils-2.1.14-r2::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) (buildtime)
   (dev-python/sepolgen-1.1.9-r2::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) (runtime)

 * Note that circular dependencies can often be avoided by temporarily
 * disabling USE flags that trigger optional dependencies.

Here is the output of emerge --info

Could someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

1st: If there's no open bug on that issue: open it
2nd: In the meantime it should be possible to emerge policycoreutils with the --nodeps ("emerge --nodeps policycoreutils") - you should reemerge it the four packages that form the circle - just to be sure...

Addition: if emerge --nodeps policycoreutils fails, try to emerge each of the other packages with --nodeps. One should work and break the circle (in this case at least).

Something must have been out of order in the portage tree. I resynchronized today and it worked. Sorry for the bother...
