Description John Dulaney 2010-07-31 14:25:14 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/abrtd "fowner" access .

Detailed Description:

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

Additional note:
It should be noted that the abrt daemon, sendmail, and sm-client all failed to start at boot.

Could you udpate your selinux-policy 

# yum update seliunx-policy-targeted

and see if these services still doesn't start.

Comment 2 John Dulaney 2010-08-02 17:11:38 UTC
Today's testing update seems to have fixed it.
