Description Guy Streeter 2009-09-24 17:44:08 EDT

SELinux is preventing qemu-kvm (svirt_t) "setrlimit" svirt_t.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by qemu-kvm. It is not expected that this access
is required by qemu-kvm 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) Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.

Comment 1 Mark McLoughlin 2009-10-01 12:35:36 EDT
I'm pretty sure this is a dup of bug #515521 and you just need latest selinux-policy and the /dev/pts line /etc/fstab changed to be:

devpts     /dev/pts   devpts  gid=5,mode=620   0 0
