Description Nido Media 2010-06-11 07:34:09 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/xdm "write" access on /var/log/xdm.log.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by xdm. It is not expected that this access is
required by xdm 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 2010-06-11 14:58:00 UTC
restorecon -R -v /var/log 

Will fix.

Somehow this got mislabeled.  If it happens again or you know how it got mislabeled please reopen the bug.
