Description of problem:


SELinux is preventing bitlbee (bitlbee_t) "read" to ./localtime (locale_t).

Podrobný popis:

SELinux denied access requested by bitlbee. It is not expected that this access
is required by bitlbee 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 access.

Povolení přístupu:

Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore
the default system file context for ./localtime,

restorecon -v './localtime'

If this does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this access.
Instead, you can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(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 bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.

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

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2008-03-03 16:05:28 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.3.1-10.fc9

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2008-03-03 16:07:15 UTC
bitlbee-1.1dev-1.bzr290.1.fc9 is not in Rawhide thus unsupported.

Comment 3 Robert Scheck 2008-03-03 16:07:55 UTC
1.1 is unstable, it can change its behaviour at any time. Does the same thing 
appear with 1.0 branch as well?

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2008-03-03 17:57:59 UTC
Well this access is allowed in almost every confined domain, so whether or not
the current release needs it, I am sure future releases will.
