Description Joseph D. Wagner 2010-08-21 16:13:47 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/ulogd "read" access on hosts.

Detailed Description:

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

I relabeled my drive on reboot just to try to be safe.  Unfortunately, that didn't help.
