Description Mads Kiilerich 2011-09-13 04:44:37 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[729]: Failed to set security context system_u:object_r:var_t:s0 for /var: Permission denied
[   25.282056] systemd-tmpfiles[729]: Failed to set security context system_u:object_r:var_run_t:s0 for /run: Permission denied

I have
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.

Since does not happen in permissive mode it is also an SELinux problem.
