Re: SELinux denial - F12

Installed F12 and did a security update. Now, I get SELinux denial error. SELinux currently in permissive mode.


SELinux is preventing access to files with the label, file_t.

Detailed Description:

SELinux permission checks on files labeled file_t are being denied. file_t is
the context the SELinux kernel gives to files that do not have a label. This
indicates a serious labeling problem. No files on an SELinux box should ever be
labeled file_t. If you have just added a new disk drive to the system you can
relabel it using the restorecon command. Otherwise you should relabel the entire
file system.

Any idea why this happened after the update? What could be done to prevent this. I am quite a newbie in SELinux scenario. Does, restorecon command fix (restorecon /usr/libexec/gdm-simple-greeter)?
