Description Ulrich Walczak 2010-02-02 14:34:31 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python "search" access on /root/.local.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by system-config-f. It is not expected that this
access is required by system-config-f 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://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug
