Description Subhendu Ghosh 2010-05-09 18:35:12 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python "rename" access on repodata.

Detailed Description:

[genpkgmetadata. has a permissive type (cobblerd_t). This access was not

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