       reconfigure,se_dselect,se_synaptic  -  run  a  Debian  package   system
       programs in the proper security context


       se_dpkg [  <<dpkg ARGS>> ... ]
       se_apt-get [ <<apt-get ARGS>> ... ]
       se_aptitude [ <<aptitude ARGS>> ... ]
       se_dpkg-reconfigure [ <<dpkg-reconfigure ARGS>> ... ]
       se_dselect [ <<dselect ARGS>> ... ]
       se_synaptic [ <<synaptic ARGS>> ... ]


       These  are  all  symbokic  links  to  a sumple wrapper script that uses
       run_init to run actually run the corresponding program after setting up
       the  proper  context.  run_init acquires a new Psuedo terminal, forks a
       child process that binds to the psueado  terminal,  forks  the  program
       (dpkg,apt-get,aptitude,synaptic,dselect,ordpkg-reconfigure)   that  the
       user actually needs to run, and  then  sits  around  and  connects  the
       physical terminal it was invoked upon with the psuedo terminal, passing
       keyboard into to the child process, and passing the output of the child
       process to the physical terminal.

       It  sets up the psuedo terminal properly based on the physical terminal
       attributes, and then sets the user’s terminal to RAW mode, taking  care
       to reset it on exit.
