Re: SELinux... a never ending story!



Joe,

I've modified line 66 in ssl.conf like this:

  SSLMutex default (instead of SSLMutex file:logs/ssl_mutex)

Now I'm able to send emails via squirrelmail, but SELinux is
still complying:

  audit(1103287307.997:0): avc: denied { search } for pid 7286
    exe=/bin/bash name=httpd dev=dm-0 ino=65076
    scontext=root:system_r:httpd_sys_script_t
    tcontext=system_u:object_r:httpd_config_t tclass=dir

I've installed squirrelmail via yum... and then added the
change-password plugin from its official web site. Of course,
to get the change-password plugin working, I had also to
compile and install poppassd (but I don't think this is the
problem).

j3d.
