Bug ID: 1087753
Summary: Dovecot fails to start, complaining "Can't open log
file /var/log/dovecot.log: Permission denied"
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE Tumbleweed
Version: Current
Hardware: Other
OS: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: AppArmor
Assignee: suse-beta@xxxxxxxxx
Reporter: psychonaut@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
QA Contact: qa-bugs@xxxxxxx

After upgrading from Tumbleweed 20180308 to Tumbleweed 20180331 today, the
Dovecot service now refuses to start. The error message is "Can't open log
file /var/log/dovecot.log: Permission denied". I tried twiddling the
permissions on that file, but no luck.

On account of Bug 1069470 and a similar problem report at
<https://serverfault.com/questions/903204/dovecot-cant-open-log-after-upgrade>
I suspect this may be a problem with AppArmor.
