Description Ulrich Drepper 2004-10-30 14:38:54 EDT
Description of problem:
The portmap daemon does not start up with the current targeted policy since it
is not allowed to use the route netlink socket.  This is used through the glibc
functions related to RPC.  It's only read access which is needed, similar to
what has been done for nscd.
