Description Christopher Aillon 2007-03-24 14:38:18 EDT
    SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon (consolekit_t) "search"
    to lib (var_lib_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon. It is not
    expected that this access is required by /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon 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.

Allowing Access
    Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials.  You could try to
    restore the default system file context for lib, restorecon -v lib If this
    does not work, 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 altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
    recommended. Please file a http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
    against this package.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-03-26 13:27:18 EDT
Should be fixed in selinux-policy-2.5.10-2.fc7
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2007-04-10 12:34:14 EDT
Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.

This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-08-22 10:17:08 EDT
Should be fixed in the current release
