SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/qemu-kvm "read" access on

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by qemu-kvm. It is not expected that this access
is required by qemu-kvm 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 Daniel Walsh 2010-05-14 13:27:07 UTC
Did you setup some kind of link in /?

Or within your own directory under /?

Comment 2 Aaron 2010-05-14 13:42:42 UTC
I had a symbolic link ~/Downloads/DISTROS/UBUNTU/ubuntu-10.04-dvd-i386.iso pointing to ~/Downloads/ubuntu-10.04-dvd-i386.iso

Is the expected behaviour of SELinux to deny access in such a case?

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-05-14 14:19:11 UTC
No but it looks like you have a labeling problem.

restorecon -R -v /home

Comment 4 Aaron 2010-05-15 08:03:50 UTC
Seems to have worked, thanks!
