Description Jonathan Underwood 2007-03-31 07:19:31 EDT
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

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

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

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

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 09:01:31 EDT
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.
