Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-14 14:46:11 EDT
What output do you get from 'stat /home/emh/test/fusemount'?  And are there any
avcs from selinux?
Comment 3 Eric Harney 2007-05-14 15:03:20 EDT
The root user can't stat or otherwise access /home/emh/test/fusemount.. it gets
the same permission denied error.   I think this is normal behavior as fuse is
setup per-user.  It may be the case that something doesn't handle this case
correctly, as the fs is listed in /etc/mtab, but only accessible to my user account.

I haven't seen any events logged from selinux.  Further poking has also revealed
that this message is output from any "rpm -i" or "rpm -e" command, and is not
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-05-14 15:22:37 EDT
The error is entirely appropriate, then.  rpm has to do a stat of all mounted
filesystems when trying to determine if there's enough available space.  Giving
feedback that one of the filesystems couldnt' be stated is entirely reasonable.
