SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver "getattr" access on

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by gnome-screensav. It is not expected that this
access is required by gnome-screensav 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

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2010-12-15 18:22:28 UTC
Gnome power manager should not be executing gnome-screensaver.

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-12-15 20:45:10 UTC
this may be a side-effect of gnome-power-manager switching to gsettings.  Now the greeter overrides for it don't work.  If that's the issue this should be moved to gdm i think.
