Description Jonathan Underwood 2007-03-31 11:19:31 UTC
Description of problem:
I notice that starting dovecot causes the following avc denied message to appear
in dmesg:

audit(1175339294.718:5): avc:  denied  { create } for  pid=23162 comm="dovecot"
scontext=user_u:system_r:dovecot_t:s0 tcontext=user_u:system_r:dovecot_t:s0
tclass=netlink_route_socket

As far as I can tell, this doesn't effect functionality.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
selinux-policy-targeted-2.4.6-46.fc6
selinux-policy-2.4.6-46.fc6
dovecot-1.0-2.rc28.fc6

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1./sbin/service dovecot restart
2.

Comment 1 Tomas Janousek 2007-04-03 12:32:48 UTC
I don't see such messages on my fc6, did you change anything in the config?
Adding Dan to Cc -- any tips on this?

Comment 2 Jonathan Underwood 2007-04-03 13:01:31 UTC
The only two changes I made to the config are
protocols = imaps
listen = localhost

Actually, on removing each of those in turn and re-adding them, I see it is the
presence of listen = localhost that gives the avc denied message - removing that
gives no message.
