Description of problem:

Running rsync daemons from xinetd, I get:

type=AVC msg=audit(1195494511.811:620538): avc:  denied  { dac_override } for 
pid=26101 comm="rsync" capability=1 scontext=system_u:system_r:rsync_t:s0
tcontext=system_u:system_r:rsync_t:s0 tclass=capability
type=AVC msg=audit(1195494511.811:620538): avc:  denied  { dac_read_search } for
 pid=26101 comm="rsync" capability=2 scontext=system_u:system_r:rsync_t:s0
tcontext=system_u:system_r:rsync_t:s0 tclass=capability

and the rsync daemon cannot chdir to the proper directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
selinux-policy-2.4.6-106.el5.3  (built on rhel5, not 5.1)

How reproducible:

You can add these rules using audit2allow.

I will add these permissions in u2.
