Description of problem:

Fresh F9 x86_64 install... all updates as of May 29th... and I can't ssh to the
box with ssh keys.  Huh?

Here are the raw selinux messages:

Surely this isn't the intention of the default rules out of the box?

Surely this is a large problem.  SSH keys don't work out of the box?  Hello?!!!
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2008-06-22 06:28:24 EDT
Some how you have a mislabeled file system.  file_t indicates that no label has
been applied to a file.  sshd seems to be on a file system separate from the one
you installed.  If you run restorecon on the file system it should fix the labels.

restorecon -R -v /home for example.

If you have a more serious problem, and you need to fix the labeling on the
entire system you can execute

touch /.autorelabel
