* rawhide-20080201 i386
* General Installation / No SELinux denials in post-install system during boot

there are warnings of avc denials logged by the auditd daemon after starting a
freshly installed system:

I guess this problem is fixed in the latest rawhide. Is it true?
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 00:58:47 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Comment 3 petrosyan 2008-07-03 00:01:45 EDT
The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose or fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since it has been thirty days or
more since we first requested additional information, we're assuming
the problem is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "CLOSED INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested,
please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.
