SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/polkit-1/polkitd "getattr" access on

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

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

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2010-02-03 13:22:21 UTC
Did you log in as root via X?  Not a good idea.

You can just remove that directory 

rm -R /root/.config

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.32-79.fc12
