Description Jiri Kastner 2010-06-09 06:55:18 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/bitlbee "create" access .

Detailed Description:

[bitlbee has a permissive type (bitlbee_t). This access was not denied.]

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