Running 'rpm -qf /etc/init.d/setroubleshoot --qf="%{NAME}\n";' yields "setroubleshoot-server". This package contains the /etc/init.d/setroubleshoot SysV init script to start the service.

I'm not sure what your command suppose to do, can you just explain it? – alexus Mar 13 '12 at 1:20
Sorry, way late response. What I meant is that you also need to install the "setroubleshoot-server" package which contains the /usr/sbin/setroubleshootd binary and the /etc/rc.d/init.d/setroubleshoot script to start the service with. – unSpawn Apr 19 '12 at 19:09
setroubleshoot-server IS installed same thing though – alexus Apr 19 '12 at 19:57
