Description Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-05 14:43:59 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing chronyd "setcap" access on <Unknown>.

Description détaillée:

[chronyd has a permissive type (initrc_t). This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by chronyd. It is not expected that this access
is required by chronyd 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.

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.
