Description Toshio Kuratomi 2007-02-14 16:27:41 UTC
Description of problem:
prelink is generating SELinux denials for /usr/games/uqm because uqm is labeled
as system_u:object_r:usr_t instead of system_u:object_r:bin_t

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time prelink runs

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  service start setroubleshoot
2.  setenforce Enforcing
3.  /etc/cron.daily/prelink

Actual results:
The setroubleshoot applet shows a nice message about prelink being denied access
to uqm.

Expected results:
No error message

Additional info:
I'm not sure if this should be a bug against selinux-policy-targeted instead.

Here's the error messages:
