Probably an selinux bug, but:

Fails on FC5T2.

Removing the trailing slash works.

No audit messages at all.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2006-01-23 17:59:06 EST
Please be a bit more specific -- starting from an empty current directory, what
do you do?
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2006-01-24 02:04:52 EST
It's the same from any directory.

The directory "b" does not exist, it is the new name for "a".

$ mkdir a
$ mv a/ b/

It fails on FC5T2. Works on FC4.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2006-01-24 04:23:13 EST
> $ mkdir a

This is what I needed -- that 'a' is a directory and that 'b' doesn't exist yet.
 Thanks; this has already been reported.
