       fixfiles - fix file security contexts.

       fixfiles  [-F]  [  -R  rpmpackagename[,rpmpackagename...] ] [ -C PREVI
       OUS_FILECONTEXT ] [-l logfile ] [-o outputfile ] { check  |  restore  |
       [-F] relabel | verify }"

       fixfiles  [-F]  [-l  logfile  ] [-o outputfile ] { check | restore|[-f]
       relabel | verify } [[dir/file] ... ]

       This manual page describes the fixfiles script.

       This script is primarily used to correct the security context  database
       (extended attributes) on filesystems.

       It  can	also be run at any time to relabel when adding support for new
       policy, or  just check whether the file contexts are all as you expect.
       By  default  it	will  relabel all mounted ext2, ext3, xfs and jfs file
       systems as long as they do not have a security  context	mount  option.
       You can use the -R flag to use rpmpackages as an alternative.

       -l logfile
	      Save the output to the specified logfile

       -o outputfile
	      Save  all  files	that  have  file_context that differs from the
	      default, in outputfile.

       -F     Force  reset  of	context to match file_context for customizable

       -f     Dont prompt for removal of /tmp directory.

       -R rpmpackagename[,rpmpackagename...]
	      Use  the rpm database to discover all files within the specified
	      packages and restore the file contexts.  (-a will get all  files
	      in the RPM database).

	      Run  a  diff  on	the PREVIOUS_FILECONTEXT file to the currently
	      installed one, and restore the context of all affected files.

       One of:

       check  print any incorrect file context labels,	showing  old  and  new
	      context, but do not change them.

	      change any incorrect file context labels.

	      Prompt for removal of contents of /tmp directory and then change
	      any  inccorect  file  context  labels  to  match	 the   install
	      file_contexts file.

       verify List  out  files	with incorrect file context labels, but do not
	      change them.

       [[dir/file] ... ]
	      List of files or directories trees that you wish to  check  file
	      context on.
