I see this alert when doing a system installation from Fedora 18 Alpha TC5 Live GNOME i686. After the installation has finished, this was in the list of alerts.
Proposing as Final blocker. Our criteria only speaks about installed system boot, not about selinux alerts during installation. I don't know whether it applies:
" In most cases, there must be no SELinux 'AVC: denied' messages or abrt crash notifications on initial boot and subsequent login (see Blocker_Bug_FAQ) "
We should either fix the alert or disable SELinux troubleshooter when Live is run, so that the users are not bothered with cryptic messages.
Anaconda or some app being executed by the install is leaking this file descriptor.
It should be closed with
fcntl(fd, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)
I have seen a similar leak on install to restorecon
This bug is still present in Alpha RC2. I'm +1 on final blocker. This could be confusing for users.
Works fine for me with TC6 Live-Desktop x86_64
