Description David Florence 2008-05-22 14:02:57 EDT
Description of problem:
SELinux denied access requested by polkit-read-aut. It is not expected that this
access is required by polkit-read-aut 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. 

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

How reproducible:
not sure

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ Or you can
disable SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
recommended. Please file a bug report against this package.
