Description Daniel Walsh 2006-10-26 10:30:59 EDT
Description of problem:

Why do we have so many places where xen can write to on the /var partition.  
Please change this to /var/lib/xen/dump for some consistency and to make writing
SELinux policy easier.  xen can already write to /var/lib/xen and its
subdirectories in selinux-policy but is not allowed to write to /var/xen/dump.

Jeremy - did you already clone this for RHEL?
Comment 3 Daniel Berrange 2007-01-11 15:50:55 EST
The updated RPM  xen-3.0.3-3.fc6  just pushed to updates-testing has moved the
core dump directory to /var/lib/xen/dumps. This should resolve the AVC denial issue.
