Okay, thank you. I will report this upstream.

Emil: coreutils test suite applies root:object_r:tmp_t:s0 to a directory and in your case this fails with "chcon: invalid context: root:object_r:tmp_t:s0: Invalid argument" (cf. ).
As far as I understand, this is an upstream limitation, which expects to be able to change any context in the test suite even though this may not be allowed if there is a policy loaded in enforced mode. Moreover it only supports MLS policy (because of the :s0 part of the context), which makes the test suite also fails hard on system with a non-MLS policy. Could you please report this upstream? (for example at A nice solution might be to skip the test if "chcon 'root:object_r:tmp_t:s0' subdir" fails in tests/mkdir/
Anyway building with makepkg --nocheck should succeed.

I am getting this error when I try to build this.

Thanks for the info. I'll update this package as soon as possible.

You will want to include this patch until the next release is made:

su is part of util-linux as of some recent version, so you should have current selinux-util-linux installed.

I think it broke su command, su, it says command not found

Ok, I deleted the line to make the backup warning go away. I'll install the systemd package that you made, I hope there is no fatal outcome :P

On the testing machine I still have sysvinit. Since it's being dropped from Arch, I will try to find out, how to do it with systemd. As for the warning, this file was moved to util-linux package, so there is not backup here.
