Description Brian Millett 2004-04-25 00:46:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a)
Gecko/20040422 Firefox/0.8.0+

Description of problem:
cat: /proc/self/attr/current: Invalid argument

is the message seen.

I am booting with selinux=0.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot
2.read screen
3.
    

Actual Results:  cat: /proc/self/attr/current: Invalid argument

Expected Results:  no message about "invalid argument"

Additional info:

code in rc.sysinit is:
# Check SELinux status
selinuxfs=`awk '/ selinuxfs / { print $2 }' /proc/mounts`
SELINUX=
if [ -n "$selinuxfs" -a  "`cat /proc/self/attr/current`" != "kernel"
]; then
	if [ -r $selinuxfs/enforce ] ; then
		SELINUX=`cat $selinuxfs/enforce`
	else
		# assume enforcing if you can't read it
		SELINUX=1
	fi
fi

I have seen the same "problem" on bootup....  

After bootup I decided to execute "cat /proc/self/attr/current" at 
the shell, and received the same:
   "cat: /proc/self/attr/current: Invalid argument".  

I checked the file and it exists with 0 bytes [rw-rw-rw-].  

I decided to create another file in my home directory [text.txt] with 
zero bytes [touch text.txt] and then execute "cat text.txt".... no 
error.  

Could this be related to something special about the "proc" 
filesystem?

Looks similar to another FC Blocker bug:

121143 [NEW - normal - notting@redhat.com] "Invalid argument" from
initscripts.

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
