:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/ruby from using the 'setuid' capabilities.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that ruby should have the setuid capability 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 deltacloudd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

*** Bug 773774 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 2 Miroslav Grepl 2012-01-16 08:41:47 UTC
I will need to allow it. But could you try to execute

$ auditctl -w /etc/shadow -p w

Try to recreate AVC. Then execute

$ ausearch -m avc -ts recent

Thank you.
