Description of problem:  SELinux is preventing gconfd-2 (xdm_t) "read write" xdm_dbusd_t

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:  not sure; I believe while using FF/T-bird

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:  

SELinux is preventing gconfd-2 (xdm_t) "read write" xdm_dbusd_t.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by gconfd-2. It is not expected that this access
is required by gconfd-2 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.

Comment 1 Christopher Aillon 2009-08-24 17:45:20 UTC
Why on earth do you think this is a firefox bug?  SELinux, not firefox, is preventing gconfd-2, not firefox, from doing something.  The output even tells you what package to file the bug against:

Source RPM Packages           GConf2-2.26.2-1.fc11

Over to GConf2

Comment 2 faith 2009-08-28 13:01:21 UTC
I never said I thought it was a FF bug; only that I had FF & T-bird open when it happened.  Are you saying I need to do something here(?), or you already did it?

Comment 3 faith 2009-09-15 23:35:58 UTC
somebody ... anybody (hopefully somebody nice to those new to Fedora)?  what happened to assistance with this 'bug'?  thanks ...

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2010-04-28 09:54:34 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 14:15:02 UTC
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
