Description STEVEN WARD 2009-09-16 14:28:46 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/kdm "unlink" access on /root/.xsession-errors-:0.

Detailed Description:

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

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