THe .xsession-errors directory is mislabeled.  It should be xdm_home_t.

Kde is leaking a file descriptor to /dev/mapper/control to loadkeys as well as a open file descriptor to /home/livecd/Document.

All of these can be ignored.

Setroubleshoot shoud probably not be installed on a livecd, since there is not much that a user can do to fix these problems.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2009-04-13 09:44:11 EDT
Well this is not quite a duplicate since it also has .xsession-errors mislabeled in the livecd image.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2009-04-13 09:47:37 EDT
ok, there's 2 bugs here, let's focus this one on .xsession-errors mislabeling, which certainly isn't a kde issue then.  Where to assign that?  livecd-tools?
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2009-04-13 09:50:13 EDT
-> LiveCD for now.
Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2009-04-13 13:08:08 EDT
.xsession-errors will just get created by the first thing which outputs to it -- kdm possibly?  It's not created by the livecd; we just use adduser to create the user's homedir.
Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2009-04-13 13:16:25 EDT
ok, then it *is* a dup (and same cause).  ??
Comment 9 Daniel Walsh 2009-04-13 13:59:14 EDT
Well if kde was running as xdm_t (Which it should, it should have created the file with the correct context xdm_home_t.)  If something else created like a process running as the user, then it will get labelled incorrectly.  xdm seems to create the file itself before execing the user shell, If kde execs the user shell and this creates it, it could be a problem.
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2009-05-26 14:51:00 EDT
A fixed kdelibs landed
* Sat Apr 18 2009 Rex Dieter <rdieter@fedoraproject.org> 4.2.2-6
- squash leaky file descriptors in kdeinit (kde#180785,rhbz#484370)

So, let's close this, unless there's new evidence of it still being present.
