Hi !

Has anybody had any time to look at this ticket: http://userspace.selinuxproject.org/trac/ticket/7 ?

I have experienced the same issue and verified that the problem is actually triggered by the bzip support (as pointed out by Stephen Smalley back in August). In fact, if I use bzip-blocksize=0 in semanage.conf then the problem disappears...

Otherwise with a default semanage.conf and bzip enabled, I get:

libsepol.module_package_read_offsets: offset greater than file size (at 4, offset 200478 -> 8192 (No such file or directory). libsemanage.semanage_load_module: Error while reading from module file /etc/selinux/refpolicy/modules/tmp/base.pp. (No such file or directory). semodule: Failed!

I am using libsepol-2.0.41 and libsemanage-2.0.42.
