Description Tim McConnell 2006-12-18 14:16:54 EST
Description of problem:
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/sbin/hald. It is not expected that
    this access is required by /usr/sbin/hald and this access may signal an
    intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or
    configuration of the application is causing it to require additional access.
    Please file a http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi against this

Allowing Access
    Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials.  You could try to
    restore the default system file context for /etc/auto.misc, restorecon -v
    /etc/auto.misc. There is currently no automatic way to allow this access.
    Instead, you can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see
    http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 - or you can
    disable SELinux protection entirely for the application. Disabling SELinux
    protection is not recommended. Please file a
    http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi against this package.
    Changing the "hald_disable_trans" boolean to true will disable SELinux
    protection this application: "setsebool -P hald_disable_trans=1."

    The following command will allow this access:
    setsebool -P hald_disable_trans=1
