Description Christopher Beland 2009-12-12 09:29:05 UTC

SELinux is preventing /lib/ld-2.11.so "execute" access on

Detailed Description:

[ld-linux.so.2 has a permissive type (abrt_t). This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by ld-linux.so.2. It is not expected that this
access is required by ld-linux.so.2 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
