Expected results:

Additional info:


SELinux is preventing console-kit-dae (consolekit_t) "getattr" fs_t.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by console-kit-dae. It is not expected that this
access is required by console-kit-dae 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.

somebody ... anybody?  please advise if I don't need to worry about this since it hasn't generated an SELinux troubleshooting report since 8/29.  wondering if I should close this bug report, or if this still could be preventing something important since I've been having so much trouble rebooting for the past few months.  thanks

I will close it as current release, if it happens again, reopen.
