The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing slim (xdm_t) "unlink" var_run_t.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by slim. It is not expected that this access is
required by slim 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) Please file a bug
report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi) against this package.
