SELinux refuses access to sm-notify during install/sw-update of Fedora 7
Last modified: 2009-01-30 08:31:39 EST
Description of problem:
SELinux (permissive mode) refused access from /usr/sbin/sm-notify to a file.
Message says to report this as a bug against this package.
SummarySELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/sm-notify (rpcd_t) "read" to
/usr/sbin/sm-notify (bin_t).Detailed DescriptionSELinux denied access requested
by /usr/sbin/sm-notify. It is not expected that this access is required by
/usr/sbin/sm-notify 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 AccessSometimes labeling
problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore the default system
file context for /usr/sbin/sm-notify, restorecon -v /usr/sbin/sm-notify 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 FAQ
Or you can disable SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection
is not recommended. Please file a bug report against this package.Additional
