Description STEVEN WARD 2009-09-05 22:05:59 UTC

Summary:

SELinux is preventing the kdm from using potentially mislabeled files (/root).

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

SELinux has denied kdm access to potentially mislabeled file(s) (/root). This
means that SELinux will not allow kdm to use these files. It is common for users
to edit files in their home directory or tmp directories and then move (mv) them
to system directories. The problem is that the files end up with the wrong file
context which confined applications are not allowed to access.

Allowing Access:

If you want kdm to access this files, you need to relabel them using restorecon
-v '/root'. You might want to relabel the entire directory using restorecon -R
-v '/root'.

audit2allow suggests:

#============= xdm_t ==============
allow xdm_t admin_home_t:dir { write remove_name };
allow xdm_t xauth_home_t:file unlink;

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-06 19:38:05 UTC
You are logging into a X Windows system as root, this is not supported in SELinux.

Can't fix.  It is not a good idea to login as root via X Windows.
