Various denials from xdm_xserver_t to security_t
Last modified: 2008-07-02 15:43:14 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm seeing lots and lots of avc denials while running X. They all seem to be
from source context xdm_xserver_t and target security_t.
If you want me to include all the messages, I can, but summarizing them might be
enough. It's being denied "read write", "compute_av", "compute_create",
"check_context", and "read" and "write" separately.
Additionally, I'm running in Permissive mode. If I enable Enforcing during a
session, very bad things happen.

We have turned off the X SELinux for now. The problem is the rules do not get
installed if you are in enforcing mode but if you boot in permissive mode and
then turn on enforcing mode, the rules will get loaded and enforced.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
