Can you do a setenforce 0 and see if any other avc messages show up?

Here it is

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2006-01-03 15:35:25 UTC
Ok I added fixes for your first log file.  Second one had no avc messages.  Can
you try it with todays policy.

Comment 6 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-01-03 15:55:20 UTC
Yes, I had seen the build report
Will test this evening
Thank you for the quick fix

Comment 7 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-01-03 18:40:04 UTC
Unfortunately today's rawhide does not boot in enforcing mode at all (dropping
in root account at startup). So I can't test the changes

Comment 8 Daniel Walsh 2006-01-03 18:42:15 UTC
Just turn off libsetrans translations in /etc/selinux/targeted/setrans.conf.  Or
update libsetrans package from 


Comment 9 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-01-05 08:38:10 UTC
I tested briefly this morning and dovecot was still broken (may be for another
reason, I switched to enforcing=0 to do a quick fix)

Comment 10 Nicolas Mailhot 2006-01-05 21:35:23 UTC
Ok seems fixed today

Can go back trying to get the spamassassin part working now ;)
