systemd-tmpfiles: Failed to set security context ... for /var: Permission denied
Last modified: 2011-09-15 11:14:24 EDT
On a system (just installed from f15 livecd, updated, yum reposynced to f16, enabled -testing, and updated kernel from koji) I get several lines with:
[ 25.269536] systemd-tmpfiles: Failed to set security context system_u:object_r:var_t:s0 for /var: Permission denied
[ 25.282056] systemd-tmpfiles: Failed to set security context system_u:object_r:var_run_t:s0 for /run: Permission denied
drwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:var_t:s0 /var
drwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:var_run_t:s0 /run
With bug 733086 fixed this seems to be the primary issue in this area on this machine.
