Description Wayne Spivak 2010-06-26 20:51:19 UTC

SELinux is preventing /bin/rm "getattr" access on /var/tempfs/out.3116.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by rm. It is not expected that this access is
required by rm 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 2010-06-28 15:05:54 UTC
This looks like local customization.

What is the /var/tmpfs directory?
If this is a tmp directory you need to label it as tmp_t.

# semanage fcontext -a -t tmp_t /var/tempfs
restorecon /var/tempfs
