Description Adrin Jalali 2009-05-23 03:19:27 EDT
By the way, why run fix command is disabled for me?


SELinux is preventing pulseaudio (xdm_t) "setattr" to .esd-42 (user_tmp_t).

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by pulseaudio. The current boolean settings do
not allow this access. If you have not setup pulseaudio to require this access
this may signal an intrusion attempt. If you do intend this access you need to
change the booleans on this system to allow the access.

Allowing Access:

Confined processes can be configured to to run requiring different access,
SELinux provides booleans to allow you to turn on/off access as needed. The
boolean allow_polyinstantiation is set incorrectly.
Boolean Description:
Enable polyinstantiated directory support.

Fix Command:

# setsebool -P allow_polyinstantiation 1
