the selinux alert
Description of problem:
I logged in to my desktop and I saw SElinux blinking about requiring attention. There I saw thatSELinux has prevented kdm to unlink .Xauthority. I have no idea what it means but since kdm is trustable, it seems odd that SELinux should block that behaviour. Why would kdm do it if it wasn't intended? :S
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I don't know exactly. I have it set to autologin into the last desktop I used which is, at the moment, GNOME. However I like kdm much better than gdm so I'm using it.
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.12-44.fc11
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
