I just did a fresh base install of fedora 12, and did a yum install 389-ds. I went through the included setup script (setup-ds-admin.pl) and everything started fine and was working normally. I could access the directory server and login using the directory manager account created during the setup.
After a reboot I tried starting the dirsrv service using the following command:
[root@test-ds ~]# /etc/init.d/dirsrv-admin start Starting dirsrv-admin: [ OK ] [root@test-ds ~]# /etc/init.d/dirsrv start Starting dirsrv: test-ds... [26/Feb/2010:14:59:11 -0500] dse - The entry cn=config in file /etc/dirsrv/slapd-test-ds/dse.ldif is invalid, error code 53 (DSA is unwilling to perform) - nsslapd-errorlog-mode: Failed to chmod error log file to 600: errno 1 (Operation not permitted) [26/Feb/2010:14:59:11 -0500] dse - Could not load config file [dse.ldif] [26/Feb/2010:14:59:11 -0500] dse - Please edit the file to correct the reported problems and then restart the server.

If I turn off SELinux with "setenforce 0", it can start without any issue. There are no entries generated in /var/log/audit/audit.log like I'd normally see for an SELinux error but it's infinitely repeatable turning SELinux on and off with setenforce.
