Description Giandomenico De Tullio 2009-12-10 15:06:45 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/hal-storage-mount "sys_resource" access.

Descrizione dettagliata:

[hal-storage-mou presenta una tipologia permissiva (hald_t). Questo accesso non
è stato negato.]

SELinux denied access requested by hal-storage-mou. It is not expected that this
access is required by hal-storage-mou and this access may signal an intrusion
attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the
application is causing it to require additional access.

Abilitazione accesso in corso:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-12-10 16:27:49 UTC
Any chance your system is running out of disk space on a partition.  This is what sys_resource access usually means.

If you free up the memory, hal will probably stop complaining.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2009-12-10 16:28:45 UTC
I will add this access, but you should still clean this up.

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.32-58.fc12.noarch

Comment 3 Giandomenico De Tullio 2009-12-10 17:13:17 UTC
Thanks for your #1 (comment).

But isn't better an "dbus-notify-baloon" saying that "all free world is lost" ? ;)
