Description mdeggers 2011-09-06 07:41:46 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/iceauth from 'unlink' accesses on the file .ICEauthority.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that iceauth should be allowed unlink access on the .ICEauthority file 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 iceauth /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 mdeggers 2011-09-06 07:51:01 UTC
This occurred while performing a clear history from Google Chrome under KDE.

Google Chrome  version:


kde 4.6.5-1

I occasionally switch back and forth between Gnome 3 and KDE 4. I'm a bit suspicious as to why iceauth needs to delete this file.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2011-09-06 15:38:46 UTC
The problem was this file was mislabeled.

restorecon ~/.ICEauthority 

Would have fixed the problem.
