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.

Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2005-11-23 16:13:03 UTC
err that should be touch /.autorelabel. sorry

Comment 3 Robert Scheck 2005-11-23 21:29:11 UTC
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).

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2005-11-30 15:09:52 UTC
What avc messages are you seeing in /var/log/messages or /var/log/audit/audit.log?

Closing due to lack of response.
