Description Joe Buck 2007-12-12 00:59:26 EST
Description of problem:

After a recent yum upgrade, printing on my HP Laserjet 1200 no longer works;
the first attempt to print gives the messsage in the summary.

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


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to print.
2. See "AVC Denial"
3. Look in setroubleshoot window for the message.
Actual results:

Printer queue goes to status "stopped".  Wife yells at me because she can't print.

Expected results:

Printed documents.

Additional info:

There were a number of related problems reported against Fedora 8 (eg #401411),
but the symptoms are different and the suggested workarounds don't apply. It
looks like this is a distinct (though related) bug.

This is also a yum repo
