Description Garrett Holmstrom 2013-09-03 16:51:02 EDT
Description of problem:
htop seems to want getsched for pretty much every process context it can see when it runs.  It still runs fine without it, but should staff_t have permission to do that or should these accesses just be dontaudited?
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/htop from using the 'getsched' accesses on a process.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that htop should be allowed getsched access on processes labeled udev_t by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep htop /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
