Additional info:
SELinux is preventing spamd (spamd_t) "read" to identity (spamd_var_lib_t).

Descrição Detalhada
SELinux denied access requested by spamd. It is not expected that this access is required by spamd 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.

Permitir o Acesso
Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore the default system file context for identity, restorecon -v 'identity' If this does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this access. Instead, you can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ Or you can disable SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended. Please file a bug report against this package.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-15 12:28:15 UTC
I have never seen this before, but I see no reason to block it.

Miroslav, add

manage_lnk_files_pattern(spamd_t, spamd_var_lib_t, spamd_var_lib_t)

To F10 and F11

I run yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update selinux-policy, so i have one installed.

I still get:

Comment 7 Carlos Miguel Sousa Almeida 2009-09-30 12:17:55 UTC
Ohh! and I did a startup with relabeling active. So selinux did a relabeling of entire file system.

Comment 8 Miroslav Grepl 2009-09-30 12:25:09 UTC
You also need to update selinux-policy-targeted package. Execute

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update selinux-policy-targeted

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2009-10-14 01:34:51 UTC
selinux-policy-3.5.13-72.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
