QA:Testcase SELinux Errors on Server installations

Release relevance

This Testcase applies the following versions of Rocky Linux: 8, 9

Associated release criterion

This test case is associated with the Release_Criteria#selinux-errors-server release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion.


Basically running a text mode installation for a longer amount of time, while using it and then checking if there were any SELinux audit messages.


Obtain access to a suitable system with one of the text mode installation base groups.

It might also be beneficial to run this test with other than the core installation, but that is a long term test and a bit out of scope of this test.

How to test

  1. Setup new machine or get access to a installed machine
  2. As this test is mostly about the stability of the core system it is mostly only needed to let the system run for a few minutes, if possible hours

Expected Results

  1. Install sealert with dnf install setroubleshoot-server
  2. Run sealert -a /var/log/audit/audit.log
  3. There must not be shown any errors / denials
