:SELinux is preventing personal.bin from 'create' accesses on the file .personal-Mannerto.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that personal.bin should be allowed create access on the .personal-Mannerto 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 personal.bin /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-04-22 20:09:11 UTC
Do you know what and where is ".personal-Mannerto"?

Comment 2 Tom Mannerhagen 2012-05-01 08:02:37 UTC

Sorry for no response from my side!

It seems this issue is picked up elsewhere too:


Hope this helps you onward



Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2012-05-02 17:56:01 UTC
Miroslav I added mozilla_plugin_enable_homedirs to policy to allow for this.  But disabled by default.
