Description Jim Cornette 2007-12-01 23:56:40 EST
Description of problem:
Booting with enforcing=0 into runlevel 5 using gdm while starting GNOME.

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

How reproducible:
boot after upgrading packages into runlevel 5.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add enforcing=0 to grub during boot up
2. login to gnome via gdm
3. check troubleshooter browser for errors
Actual results:
Received errors not listed in search for dbus

Expected results:
I was booting into runlevel 3 mostly and no more errors related to SELinux 
are now present. I was not sure what runlevel 5 would show.

Additional info:
    SELinux is preventing /bin/dbus-daemon (xdm_t) "create" to <Unknown>

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /bin/dbus-daemon. It is not expected that
    this access is required by /bin/dbus-daemon 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.
