Description Stephanos Manos 2007-06-09 12:47:23 UTC
Description of problem:
whenever i start my system setroubleshoot logs the following 

    SELinux is preventing /sbin/lvm.static (lvm_t) "write" to .cache

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /sbin/lvm.static. It is not expected that
    this access is required by /sbin/lvm.static 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 .cache, restorecon -v .cache 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.
