Description Jiannan Liu 2010-07-05 12:28:55 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/gnome-system-monitor-mechanism "getattr"
access on /usr/share/locale/locale.alias.

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by gnome-system-mo. It is not expected that this
access is required by gnome-system-mo 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
