NAME

run_init - run an init script in the proper SELinux context

SYNOPSIS

run_init SCRIPT [[ARGS]...]
 

DESCRIPTION

Run a init script under the proper context, which is specified in /etc/selinux/POLICYTYPE/contexts/initrc_context. It is generally used interactively as it requires either shadow or PAM user authentication (depending on compile-time options). It should be possible to configure PAM such that interactive input is not required. Check your PAM documentation.

FILES

/etc/passwd - user account information
 
/etc/shadow - encrypted passwords and age information
 
/etc/selinux/POLICYTYPE/contexts/initrc_context - contains the context to run init scripts under
