Description Jesse Keating 2007-01-30 02:08:05 UTC
I get a few selinux denials when using exim on a default install.

avc: denied { setuid } for comm="sendmail" egid=93 euid=0 exe="/usr/sbin/exim"
exit=-1 fsgid=93 fsuid=0 gid=93 items=0 pid=2411

exim gets picked as the provider of /usr/bin/sendmail, because it has the
shortest name out of sendmail, postfix, or exim.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-02-01 19:47:12 UTC
If you chcon -t sendmail_exec_t /usr/sbin/exim, does the problem go away?

Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2007-02-09 20:13:47 UTC
I can't seem to duplicate this.  Did you do any selinux changes for exim recently?

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-02-12 15:20:32 UTC
no

Comment 4 Scott Talbot 2007-02-20 17:59:46 UTC
Just my 2 cents here, but I received a few similar errors today.  They were
easily fixed through advice from setroubleshoot however. the fixes were

semanage fcontext -a -t bin_t sudoedit
restorecon -v /var/log/exim/main.log
setsebool -P allow_daemons_use_tty=1
restorecon /var/log/exim/panic.log

Not sure why or when I started getting these and I don't recall the specific errors.

Hope this helps

Please attach your avc messages?
