SELinux is preventing dbus-daemon (xdm_dbusd_t) "execute" to ./gconfd-2

Podrobný popis:

SELinux denied access requested by dbus-daemon. It is not expected that this
access is required by dbus-daemon 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 ./gconfd-2,

restorecon -v './gconfd-2'

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.

This should not be a blocker unless it actually blocks something like login?

> This should not be a blocker unless it actually blocks something like login?

Yeah, I don't see any particular problem jumping up.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-11-13 14:17:17 EST
Have you tried to change languages?

> Have you tried to change languages?

Sorry, don't understand. You mean like whether I have switched from English to Czech or something? My default locale is cs_CZ.utf-8, and yes I am switching keyboard to US from time to time when using kvm (vnc in kvm has unholy tendency to lock up with Czech keyboard).
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2008-11-14 15:19:58 EST
Yes I am just guessing that somehow gdm is talking to dbus which is calling into gconf when changing language.
Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 00:08:10 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
