I have absolutely no idea, where this comes from. Might be related to openswan, but not sure about that.


SELinux is preventing /bin/sed "unlink" access on hostse.

Podrobný popis:

[SELinux je v tolerantním režimu. Přístup byl povolen.]

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

Povolení přístupu:

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 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-06-10 12:30:59 UTC
grep hoste /etc/init.d/*

find /etc -name hoste

Comment 4 Matěj Cepl 2010-06-10 15:02:24 UTC
johanka:~# grep hoste /etc/init.d/*
johanka:~# find /etc -name hoste

So it is probably something temporary. Moreover,

grep -rwi hoste /etc/

gave me nothing on stdout (just some broken links on stderr)

Ok lets pretend it never happened then.  :^( 

Reopen if it happens again.
