Description Fabrício Godoy 2009-06-27 17:26:24 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm receiving a lot of below messages.

SELinux is preventing python (hplip_t) "read" security_t.
Detailed Description
SELinux denied access requested by python. It is not expected that this access is required by python 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 Or you can disable SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended. Please file a bug report against this package.
