Description Jim Cornette 2007-11-23 03:33:50 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux error on out of ordinary runlevel 5 environment, gdm crashed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GConf2-2.20.1-2.fc9 [application]GConf2-2.20.1-2.fc9 [target]

How reproducible:
the log shows better details.
    SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/gconfd-2 (xdm_t) "execute_no_trans" to
    /usr/libexec/gconfd-2 (gconfd_exec_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/libexec/gconfd-2. It is not expected
    that this access is required by /usr/libexec/gconfd-2 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

Allowing Access
    Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials.  You could try to
    restore the default system file context for /usr/libexec/gconfd-2,
    restorecon -v /usr/libexec/gconfd-2 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.
