Description Nicolas Mailhot 2009-09-29 20:27:56 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/dovecot "getcap" access.

Description détaillée:

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

Autoriser l'accès:

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

I will add getcap and setcap

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.32-12.fc12.noarch
