Post FC6 upgrade SELinux problem



After upgrading from FC5 to FC6, I couldn't get X-Windows to run. A
look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log shows at the end:

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

Usually, this means the xfs server has failed. A look at the processes shows:

xfs -droppriv -daemon

I then tried to restart the server (/etc/init.d/xfs restart), and got
this response (in dmesg):

audit(1167838535.903:182): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=2850
comm="xfs" name="fonts.dir" dev=hda5 ino=3193250
scontext=root:system_r:xfs_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:object_r:usr_t:s0
tclass=file

I'm still too new at SELinux to know the fix for this. Any help is appreciated.

And could someone tell me if this was a failure of the upgrade, and if
so, should I report this?

Thanks!

Kirk
