Description Daniel Yeisley 2011-08-30 18:52:09 UTC
Description of problem:
I'm seeing beaker report an avc failure during my ISV Oracle-oast testing.  I didn't see this during my RHEL 6.1 testing.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
It happens with all of the 6.2 builds that I've tried.  

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run ISV Oracle-Oast test (either 10g or 11g)
2. Wait for beaker to report the failure.
Actual results:
Following messages were found in dmesg:
type=1400 audit(1314297049.419:363336): avc:  denied  { getattr } for  pid=12562 comm="postdrop" path="pipe:[75274]" dev=pipefs ino=75274 scontext=system_u:system_r:postfix_postdrop_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=system_u:system_r:abrt_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tclass=fifo_file

Expected results:
