Description Jordan Nash 2008-03-16 14:29:52 UTC
Description of problem:
This is a problem with a script, but I did not trace it to a specific one, so I
am hoping someone more knowledgeable will be able to do so, and move this bug to
the appropriate location.

The complete SELinux alert follows:

SELinux is preventing df (logwatch_t) "getattr" to / (unlabeled_t).

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode, the operation would have been denied but was
permitted due to permissive mode.]

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

Allowing Access:

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.
