setsebool -P allow_daemons_dump_core=1 was executed

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2009-03-11 16:08:28 UTC
Hrm, I can't seem to reproduce this.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2009-03-11 16:30:22 UTC
Reconfirmed ok here (using kde-4.2.1, currently in updates-testing).

How are you logging into kde?  Using gdm, kdm?

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2009-03-11 17:39:07 UTC
Ah, ha, nuked my ~root/.kde folder, and now can see it.

Comment 5 vikram goyal 2009-03-14 17:06:39 UTC
Its GDM.

Comment 6 Andre Robatino 2009-03-22 16:29:34 UTC
I see it with selinux-policy-targeted-3.5.13-48.fc10.noarch, even though I have a ~root/.kde directory.  It appears to happen at every boot.  Please change the Summary to remove the version number.  Also, I'm on x86_64, so the Platform should be "All Linux".

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2009-03-22 16:47:48 UTC
adjusted summary/platform.

Comment 8 Steven M. Parrish 2009-04-27 18:52:53 UTC

Comment 9 Daniel Stripes 2009-05-15 12:27:36 UTC
I am still seeing this with selinux-policy-3.5.13-58.fc10, kdelibs-4.2.2-12.fc10, and kernel  Logging in using gdm here also.

During today's KDE-SIG meeting we decided this is the same issue as described in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=498809.  So closing as a dupe of that one.
