As far as I can tell, it's actually a problem with the SELinux policy.
There's no /lib/ld-linux.so.2 on the initrd because the new policy
denies ldconfig permission to create the softlink in the tempdir.

No ld-linux.so.2, no nash. No nash, no boot.

Cracking open the initrd and adding the softlink allows the system to
boot normally.

You could probably also get around this by rolling back to an older
selinux-policy-targeted and re-running mkinitrd. It's probably easiest
just to wait for a fixed selinux-policy-targeted package, though.


I can confirm this. I did 'setenforce 0; rpm -ivh' of .2985 packages
and it booted.
