Re: Enabling SELinux Alert notification

OK, never mind that. After a system reboot, it magically worked.

(One bit of important information I forgot to include is that this is a x86_64 system. I'm not sure if that would explain some of the problems that I encountered. By the way, the eye candy is really sweet; like it very much.)

I read about FC6 ships with SELinux alert notification tool, but I couldn't get it to work.

After installing FC6 in full, I didn't find the alert tool installed. (I had problem with FirstBoot; workaround found; then my rpm database corrupted after the first update; it was restored. Newbie would really find it not easy, unless they are good at searching for solution on the web. But that is a different story...)

I read a few web pages and figured out the package to install, so this is what I had done:

# yum install setroubleshoot

I started the service:
#/etc/init.d/setroubleshoot start

I didn't get notification when I copied a file from my home directory to apache html directory and attempted to access the file. I got "403 Forbidden" error page, but there is no notification.

I tried the following commands, but they didn't work with root privilege:

# /usr/bin/sealert -b
could not attach to desktop process, running standalone
# /usr/bin/sealert
could not attach to desktop process

With user privilege, I can start the setroubleshoot browser, but it couldn't access /var/log/messages as expected.

What am I missing?

Thanks for your help.
