8.263. xguest

An updated xguest package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xguest package sets up the xguest user which can be used as a temporary account to switch to or as a kiosk user account. These accounts are disabled unless SELinux is in enforcing mode.

Bug Fixes

Due to a bug in the dependency requirements for the preinstall scriptlet, installing the xguest package failed because of a dependency problem. This update adds the selinux-policy-targeted package to the dependency list, and installing xguest now works as expected.
Previously, the xguest README file did not reflect the current state of the defined xguest SELinux booleans in the SELinux policy. This update modifies the README file to correctly document the current state of the aforementioned booleans.
Users of xguest are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
