Description Joel James Adamson 2010-02-02 13:55:50 UTC

SELinux is preventing /sbin/mount.cifs "read" access on /home/joel/.smbpasswd.

Detailed Description:

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

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2010-02-02 14:44:32 UTC
Where does this link point?  Will mount have to read files in the users homedir to make this work?

Comment 2 Joel James Adamson 2010-02-02 15:25:04 UTC
It points to another file in my home directory (another dot-file), with the  permissions set to 600.
