The mdadm error repeats periodically and interferes with my use of the

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Alexandre Oliva 2004-09-14 18:14:06 EDT
Yuck.  This problem causes a messed-up initrd.img to be created if
your root device happens to be on raid.
Comment 2 Colin Walters 2004-09-14 18:52:04 EDT
The mdadm bug is fixed by a patch I sent to selinux@tycho.  Not sure
about the ntpd one.
Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2004-09-15 11:08:13 EDT
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.16-2 should fix this problem.
Comment 7 Daniel Reed 2004-09-15 11:22:55 EDT
I upgraded to selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.16-2 and no longer receive
the ntpd error. (I have not received the mdadm error since Colin
patched my sources yesterday afternoon, and upgrading to 16-2 did not
cause the mdadm error to resurface.)

I found 16-2 in dist/fc3-HEAD and not dist/fc3, and I'm not sure if
that means this can be closed "RAWHIDE" or not.
Comment 8 Alexandre Oliva 2004-09-15 23:37:29 EDT
It made it to FC3-re0915.0, so it's certainly going to be in FC3test2
and probably tomorrow's rawhide.  Feel free to close it.
