:SELinux is preventing /sbin/setfiles from 'getattr' accesses on the filesystem /sys.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that setfiles should be allowed getattr access on the sys filesystem by default.
:Then you should report this as a bug.
:You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
:allow this access for now by executing:
:# grep restorecon /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Mads Kiilerich 2011-08-05 16:37:44 UTC
This happened while building with livecd-creator in permissive mode, so I guess it was run inside the chroot.
