Description Bill Nottingham 2004-03-16 15:21:34 EST

avc: denied {search} for pid=2331 exe=/bin/login name=root dev=hda3
ino=blah scontext=system_u:system_r:local_login_t
tcontext=system_u:object_r:default_t class=dir

Looks like /root gets the wrong context, although it's not something
that gets relabeled with setfiles.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-16 15:22:00 EST
Note that this causes:

No directory /root!
Logging in with home = "/"
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2004-03-17 23:52:17 EST
fixed in policy-1.9-1 and updated policycoreutils
