Dear all,
I really wanted to solve the problem by myself, but...

I receive a lot of message from selinux of the type

audit(1158744172.025:364): avc: denied { search } for pid=1568 comm="pam_console_app" name="var" dev=dm-0 ino=130817 scontext=system_u:system_r:pam_console_t:s0-s0:c0.c255 tcontext=system_u:object_r:file_t:s0 tclass=dir

The context type file_t suggests to me that you have a labelling problem. We might be able to find it with more log details. Can you post the output of:

# ausearch -a 364
# ls -lZd /var

ausearch is in the audit package, in case you don't already have it.


Thanks, Paul, very kind.

I installed the audit package, then after reboot I have

> # ausearch -a 364

type=USER_AUTH msg=audit(1158759070.643:364): user pid=2593 uid=0 auid=4294967295 subj=system_u:system_r:xdm_t:s0-s0:c0.c255 msg='PAM: authentication acct=gf : exe="/usr/sbin/gdm-binary" (hostname=?, addr=?, terminal=:0 res=success)'

(Not sure if it refers to the previous message, by the way)

> # ls -lZd /var

drwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:var_t          /var

Hope this helps

Thanks again
