Additional info:
I have selinux running in permissive mode, but I get the following:
type=AVC msg=audit(1178508473.360:295): avc:  denied  { append } for  pid=3650
comm="local" name="root" dev=dm-2 ino=19231
tcontext=system_u:object_r:mail_spool_t:s0 tclass=file
type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1178508473.360:295): arch=40000003 syscall=5 success=yes

exe="/usr/libexec/postfix/local" subj=user_u:system_r:postfix_local_t:s0 key=(null)

After the system starts and I login I can 'service postfix start' without problems.

With F7 the problem remains (changing from devel to F7). Is my installation
broken somehow or no one else uses postfix?
Comment 2 Doncho N. Gunchev 2007-06-03 16:19:38 EDT
My install seems to have been broken somehow, reinstalled from F7 KDE LiveCD and
how it works...
