[Rdo-list] Fwd: [OpenStack-docs] [install-guide] (not that much) progress with Kilo install on RHEL/Centos 7

openstack-selinux is generally available for RHEL and CentOS, but not
for Fedora.  On Fedora in particular, selinux related issues are
supposed to be reported directly against selinux-policy.

When using RDO Kilo with CentOS 7, the openstack-selinux package comes
from the rdo-juno repository.  Note that installing
configures two repositories on your system:

    name=OpenStack Juno Repository

    name=Temporary OpenStack Kilo new deps

I notice that the draft Kilo install guide still points at the Juno

As of last week, there were still selinux bugs open against RDO Juno.
I'm not sure what the state of the Kilo packages are at this opint,
but it seems likely that there may be issues there as well.

If you're seeing this on a RHEL or Fedora system, you should open a
bug in bugzilla so we can track this issue and maybe come up with an
appropriate solution.

There's a bug open on that for RHEL:


We should probably clone that to RDO as well.

You shouldn't require COPR repositories for anything.  If you
encounter a repeatable packaging error, make sure to open a bugzilla
so that folks are aware of the issue.

On CentOS 7 right now, I am able to install both python-keystoneclient
and openstack-keystone without any errors, using only the base, RDO,
and EPEL repositories.

I suspect the answer to all of the above is, "because legacy".  v3
support has only recently been showing up in all of the services, and
many folks still aren't familiar with the newer APIs.  The
admin/non-admin port separation is another historical oddity that we
have to live with.  With Keystone v2, at least, there are some
features only available through the admin api on the admin port.

There is a known problem that has been corrected in the latest Kilo
packages.  There was no corresponding bz filed (via apevec, irc).

Debugging this will probably require someone looking over your shoulder at your
glance configuration.
