[LDM #PNQ-433442]: LDM Question



Hugh,

The problem with SELinux is that, by default, it prevents LDM programs from 
logging to the LDM log file because, by default, it prevents the system logging 
daemon from logging to any file that isn't under the /var/log directory -- and 
the LDM log file is in the directory ~ldm/var/log.

One might be able to work around this via symbolic links, but because that 
would defeat the intention of the default SELinux policy rule, I would not be 
surprised if that didn't work.

Unfortunately, I haven't investigated the matter sufficiently to devise an 
SELinux policy rule that would allow LDM logging. I intend to, but it's a 
question of time. If you arrive at a solution, please let me know.
