Description Peter Trenholme 2009-09-10 15:12:22 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing krootimage "link" access on backgroundrc.lock.MT1376.

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

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