Description of problem:  SELinux denied access requested by polkit-resolve-

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

How reproducible: not sure - didn't seem to keep me from doing anything at the time so I didn't stop to look at error immediately; have had so many seemingly unnotable errors, got to where I just click thru them, just trying to get my work done (!)

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:


SELinux is preventing polkit-resolve- (polkit_resolve_t) "getattr" fs_t.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by polkit-resolve-. It is not expected that this
access is required by polkit-resolve- 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.

please advise if I should no longer worry about this - last seen 8/27 per SELinux troubleshooting reports, but having so much trouble with crashing and rebooting that I wonder if it could somehow still be preventing something.  thanks
