Description Pau Aliagas 2009-11-13 19:57:37 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/xauth "write open" access on .serverauth.6599-c.

Descripció detallada:

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

Permet l'accés:

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
