If you're running SELinux in enforcing mode, please close as dupe of bug 230155
If you're not logging in via gdm, please close as dupe of bug 228110
SELinux is enforcing and I'm using gdm.
But I'm doing "tail -f /var/log/audit/audit.log" and there are no messages when
the error occurs. Is it still a SELinux problem?
If it is, what can I do to enable this functionality (other than switching from
enforcing mode which I do not want to do)?
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 230155 ***
I'm not sure why SELinux is logging errors - that's also a problem in 230155...
Thanks, I'll watch the other bug then.
Moving to 'devel' as discussed on
