Description Pete Graner 2007-09-18 10:28:42 EDT
Description of problem: updating to rawhide 2007-09-18 causes the following AVC: 

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

[pgraner@moltar ~]$ rpm -q selinux-policy-targeted

    SELinux is preventing cupsd (cupsd_t) "check_context" to <Unknown>

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by cupsd. It is not expected that this
    access is required by cupsd 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
    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.
