Description Philip Sherman 2007-08-17 10:37:18 EDT
Description of problem: Error occurred during yum update of system

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
See attached

How reproducible:
Probably not.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Restore system to pre-update level
2. Install yum updates
Actual results:
See additional information for SELinux error log information

Expected results:
No errors

Additional info:
SELinux is preventing /sbin/rpc.statd (rpcd_t) "write" to (sysctl_fs_t).
Detailed Description
SELinux denied access requested by /sbin/rpc.statd. It is not expected that this
access is required by /sbin/rpc.statd 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 , restorecon -v 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 FAQ Or you can disable SELinux
protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended. Please
file a bug report against this package.
