Description Don Novak 2010-07-24 10:27:32 UTC

SELinux is preventing
"search" access on /home.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by openMalariaA_6.. It is not expected that this
access is required by openMalariaA_6. 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
