Description Sean lin 2010-01-31 11:55:34 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/vmware-tools/sbin32/vmware-guestd "write" access
on /tmp.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by vmware-guestd. It is not expected that this
access is required by vmware-guestd 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
