Description Erik Bartoš 2010-08-11 04:33:40 EDT

SELinux is preventing minirosetta_2.1 "write" access on fifo_file.

Detailed Description:

[minirosetta_2.1 has a permissive type (boinc_project_t). This access was not

SELinux denied access requested by minirosetta_2.1. It is not expected that this
access is required by minirosetta_2.1 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
