Description T.D. Houfek 2007-06-28 10:42:46 EDT
Description of problem:

    SELinux is preventing /sbin/ldconfig (ldconfig_t) "read" to libapr-0.so

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /sbin/ldconfig. It is not expected that
    this access is required by /sbin/ldconfig 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 libapr-0.so, restorecon -v
    libapr-0.so 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.

I don't see how this is an issue with nethack, as it does not even require
libapr.  If you are still experiencing this violation, please file a bug against
SELinux policy.
