Description Michal Trunecka 2013-06-05 13:37:20 UTC
Description of problem:
automount cannot mount into public_content_t, which fails with avc. Since ftpd can read/write to autofs_t and nfs_t using corresponding booleans, I would expect I can mount dirs into /var/ftp directory, which has public_content_t by default.
