Should work, shouldn't it? ;-)
Thank you for your report.
Run yum install selinux-policy-targeted to get the latest updates.
Relabel your filesystem by running touch ./autorelabel and reboot your system.
check if this fixes the problem. If not provide the AVC denied messages from
/var/log/audit (if you are runnning audit service) or /var/log/messages.
err that should be touch /.autorelabel. sorry
Maybe I should say, that the system isn't mine, but it's a default installation
of Fedora Core 4 (SELinux targeted enforced) without any SELinux boolean changes
etc. It is up2date and selinux-policy-targeted-1.27.1-2.11 is the latest stable
available policy (even -1.27.1-2.14 seems to provide no changes there).
What avc messages are you seeing in /var/log/messages or /var/log/audit/audit.log?
Closing due to lack of response.
