[DSE-Dev] Bug#707217: libguestfs is using deprecated /selinux mountpoint

Package: libguestfs
Version: 1:1.20.6-3
Severity: normal


Since Wheezy, the selinuxfs mountpoint is mounted under /sys/fs/selinux
and not under /selinux anymore.

In the following days I'm planning to upload a newer version of
libselinux that will completely drop that directory.

I'm seeing in that your package is explicitly bind mounting that

The software should probably try to mount the new mountpoint location
(/sys/fs/selinux) and then only fallback to /selinux if it's failling.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
