Description Adam Royal 2010-08-13 13:32:05 EDT

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/vmnet-natd "write" access on vmnet-natd-8.pid.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by vmnet-natd. It is not expected that this
access is required by vmnet-natd 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
