Description Dave 2008-01-05 00:14:42 EST
    SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/setsebool (setsebool_t) "setbool" to
    <Unknown> (security_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/sbin/setsebool. It is not expected
    that this access is required by /usr/sbin/setsebool 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
    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.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2008-01-08 14:02:17 EST
Did you set one of the secure_mode booleans?

getsebool -a | grep secure

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2008-02-26 17:37:24 EST
I am assuming you did since this is the only way I can see this avc happening
