Description Alexander Todorov 2007-12-18 03:59:34 EST
Description of problem:
SELinux denial

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
selinux-policy-targeted - 2.4.6-104.el5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5.1-Server(dom0) on HVM enabled hardware
2. Install RHEL5.1-Server from DVD as domU.
3. run the Xen guest. The error appears in domU
Actual results:
SELinux error.

Expected results:
No SELinux errors

Additional info:
As the path in AVC message is 'system-config-display' I guess this is something
related to firstboot/installation and X configuration. The domU is using a Xvnc
display to render it's graphics.
Xvnc :1
export DISPLAY=:1
virt-install ... (which opens up the graphical console)
