Description Ingemar Nilsson 2007-06-07 11:57:15 EDT
Description of problem:

Output from setroubleshoot follows:

SELinux is preventing access to files with the default label, default_t.

Detailed Description
SELinux permission checks on files labeled default_t are being denied. These
files/directories have the default label on them. This can indicate a labeling
problem, especially if the files being referred to are not top level
directories. Any files/directories under standard system directories, /usr,
/var. /dev, /tmp, ..., should not be labeled with the default label. The default
label is for files/directories which do not have a label on a parent directory.
So if you create a new directory in / you might legitimately get this label.

Allowing Access
If you want a confined domain to use these files you will probably need to
relabel the file/directory with chcon. In some cases it is just easier to
relabel the system, to relabel execute: "touch /.autorelabel; reboot"
