Description 2010-05-28 06:34:41 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/accounts-daemon "setgid" access .

Detailed Description:

[accounts-daemon has a permissive type (accountsd_t). This access was not

SELinux denied access requested by accounts-daemon. It is not expected that this
access is required by accounts-daemon and this access may signal an intrusion
attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the
application is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
( Please file a bug
