Hi all,

It looks like procmail is trying to do *something*. I would just like to find out what it is that procmail is trying to do. So I could see whether it is legitemate. I do assume procmail knows what it is doing, but before I relable the system (as indicated in the explanation) I would just like to know: shouldn't the SELinux be fitted to procmail in some way? Is there a way I can get this accomplished i.e. can I report this to procmail as a bug?

P.S. I include the complete message, maybe it helps.


============ Explanatory message ======================

Summary
SELinux is preventing access to files with the default label, default_t.
Detailed Description
SELinux permission checks on files labeled default_t are being denied. These files/directories have the default label on them. This can indicate a labeling problem, especially if the files being referred to are not top level directories. Any files/directories under standard system directories, /usr, /var. /dev, /tmp, ..., should not be labeled with the default label. The default label is for files/directories which do not have a label on a
    parent directory. So if you create a new directory in / you might
    legitimately get this label.

Allowing Access
If you want a confined domain to use these files you will probably need to relabel the file/directory with chcon. In some cases it is just easier to
    relabel the system, to relabel execute: "touch /.autorelabel; reboot"

restorecon -R -v /root

Should be fixed by the first update release.
