Description STEVEN WARD 2009-09-05 22:00:52 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing sealert (setroubleshoot_fixit_t) "signull" rpm_t.

Detailed Description:

[sealert has a permissive type (setroubleshoot_fixit_t). This access was not

SELinux denied access requested by sealert. It is not expected that this access
is required by sealert and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is
also possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is
causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug
report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi) against this package.
