Description Michal Nowak 2010-07-15 07:09:26 UTC

SELinux is preventing yum "unlink" access on yum.pid.

Detailed Description:

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

SELinux denied access requested by yum. It is not expected that this access is
required by yum 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 2 Milos Malik 2010-07-15 08:39:24 UTC
The PID file on your machine is mislabelled.

# matchpathcon /var/run/yum.pid
/var/run/yum.pid	system_u:object_r:rpm_var_run_t:s0

Comment 3 Michal Nowak 2010-07-15 08:51:17 UTC
I remember I have restored context yesterday via fixfiles, in case it affects anything.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2010-07-15 12:49:06 UTC
This is beginning to look like you ran abrtd under the wrong context, unconfined_t?

Which is causing all of these mislabeled files.
