:SELinux is preventing kdm from 'write' accesses on the file /home/edy/.dmrc.
:*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests  *************************
:If you want to fix the label. 
:/home/edy/.dmrc default label should be xdm_home_t.
:Then you can run restorecon.
:# /sbin/restorecon -v /home/edy/.dmrc
:*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that kdm should be allowed write access on the .dmrc 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 kdm /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-03-29 07:06:03 EDT
It is mislabeled.

restorecon -r -v /home/edy

Was this an updated system?

Not sure how the directory got created with the wrong label.
