Description Stefan Schulze Frielinghaus 2008-02-25 14:56:25 EST
Description of problem:
The imap server "dovecot" uses a hard link which does not conform with the
SELinux strict/mls policy. The attached patch should solve the problem and was
merged into refpolicy-trunk (today). I'm not sure if the patch will work on the
RedHat policy tree but it is not too big and can be merged easily by hand.

The FC fix is already in selinux-policy-2.4.6-121.el5

The other fixes might have to wait for U3, since it is currently frozen

Fixed in selinux-policy-2.4.6-124.el5

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
