It should instead include the guix-daemon.cil file which was built from
it. The .in file has unsubstituted variabels in it which make it useless
as an SELinux policy.

Actually I think both should be included.  The processed file will work
for 99% of users, and the template is needed for the 1% that use a
different store directory.

@Ludo: WDYT about the attached patch for version-1.2.0?

Fair enough.

Yes, but running “./configure” gives you the ‘etc/guix-daemon.cil’ for
your configuration.  What’s wrong with that?

Marius: common practice is to not include instantiated templates; we
wouldn’t use templates in the first place if contents were always the
same.  :-)

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Is a pre-generated .cil file required to run ./configure at all on 
some systems?  How's it different from, say, the Makefile which is 
also generated later?

Kind regards,

That's true; I'd forgotten about that. The reason I mention it is that
it would be nice if guix-install.sh could set up the selinux policy. I
guess this is the only step that would need to run configure.

Yes indeed; somehow I thought the bootstrapped tarball also had run
"configure" with the common options, but obviously that's incorrect.

Closing this bug, as there is no reason to special-case this one file.

Good point!  The installed ‘guix’ has that file under
share/selinux/guix-daemon.cil, so perhaps the script could copy it from
there?

HTH,

It only has it if you run configure first.

“The installed ‘guix’” here refers to the one
/var/guix/profiles/per-user/root that ‘guix-install.sh’ installed.

It only has what's in the tarball, which is just guix-daemon.cil.in.

Oh, got it; now that’s a bug, sorry if I had misunderstood all along!

Now fixed in d4031410375834349bc0d56630be86b076a1d704.
