:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/gnome-shell from 'search' accesses on the directory vm.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If vous pensez que gnome-shell devrait être autorisé à accéder search sur vm directory par défaut.
:Then vous devriez rapporter ceci en tant qu'anomalie.
:Vous pouvez générer un module de stratégie local pour autoriser cet accès.
:autoriser cet accès pour le moment en exécutant :
:# grep pool /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 3 Miroslav Grepl 2012-10-05 11:38:35 UTC
I see more and more domains which want this access.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2012-10-06 11:41:23 UTC
Probably a change in a low level library.  I have no idea why any app would need this without more access required.

I do not have the "pool" command on my box?
