Description Christopher Aillon 2007-04-27 08:27:41 UTC
    SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/prelink (prelink_t) "getattr" to /lib
    /mapping-fedora (lib_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/sbin/prelink. It is not expected
    that this access is required by /usr/sbin/prelink 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/mapping-fedora, restorecon
    -v /lib/mapping-fedora 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.

What the heck is /lib/mapping-fedora and why is it under /lib?

Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2007-04-27 16:08:51 UTC
Uh.  Actually, good question.  I have no idea what it is or why it's there.

[root@mithrandir ~]# rpm -qf /lib/mapping-fedora
file /lib/mapping-fedora is not owned by any package
[root@mithrandir ~]# ls -hl /lib/mapping-fedora
srwxrwxr-x 1 caillon caillon 0 2007-03-20 22:38 /lib/mapping-fedora
[root@mithrandir ~]# less /lib/mapping-fedora 
/lib/mapping-fedora is not a regular file (use -f to see it)
[root@mithrandir ~]# less -f /lib/mapping-fedora 
/lib/mapping-fedora: No such device or address

Wonder where that socket came from.  Oh well, just removed it.  Very strange.
