Comment 1 Lennart Poettering 2011-08-29 12:01:59 UTC
Igor, any selinux AVCs in the logs when this happens?

Dan, do you have an idea what might be wrong here? This is our own label_mkdir() which internall invokes setfscreatecon() followed by mkdir(). The setfscreatcon() fails with EPERM/EACCES.

Comment 2 Lennart Poettering 2011-08-29 12:03:27 UTC
Hmm, probably a duplicate of bug 733086

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2011-08-29 16:17:23 UTC
I think so.
