Description Dan Beard 2007-10-17 15:02:37 EDT
Description of problem:
    SELinux is preventing X (xdm_xserver_t) "read write" to /SYSV00000000
    (deleted) (rpm_tmpfs_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by X. It is not expected that this access is
    required by X 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 /SYSV00000000 (deleted),
    restorecon -v /SYSV00000000 (deleted) 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.

Could you please give some information on what you were doing when this happened? 

Also, I assume this happened in rawhide and not actually FC6Test3?

Also, please put useful summaries in bug reports - it makes things a lot harder
when we can't tell what a bug is about from the summary.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2007-10-18 16:03:15 EDT
