SELinux is preventing ck-get-x11-serv (consolekit_t) "search" mnt_t.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by ck-get-x11-serv. It is not expected that this
access is required by ck-get-x11-serv 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.

Allowing Access:

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.

Jon any idea what it would be looking for in the /mnt directory?
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 12:52:07 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Dan, not really...

Here is the extent of that program:

Would XOpenDisplay be looking in there?
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-24 11:26:52 EDT
