Description Samuel Hodges 2013-08-05 09:46:09 EDT
Description of problem:
I just login in after a boot up. Prioa to that I had changed my SELinux setting from disabled to permissive. I have just done a reinstall to fedora 19 and for some reason SELinux was desable by default.
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/pkla-check-authorization from 'associate' accesses on the shared memory .

*****  Plugin associate (99.5 confidence) suggests  **************************

If you want to change the label of  to policykit_auth_t, you are not allowed to since it is not a valid file type.
Then you must pick a valid file label.
select a valid file type.  List valid file labels by executing: 
# seinfo -afile_type -x

*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that pkla-check-authorization should be allowed associate access on the  shm 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 pkla-check-auth /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

I think you are not fully labeled correctly.

Did the system relabel?
