Description of problem:

I get there warnings while a Dell Latitude CPx laptop boots:

request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- char-major-4-72. error = 256
request_module: failed /sbin/modprobe -- char-major-4-87. error = 256

The first two, some app tried to open /dev/ttyS8 and /dev/ttyS23, for
some odd reason.

The second one is cups looking for USB printers.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-16 02:22:21 UTC
Without knowing what apps called it, I really can't determine where to
assign this. Do these continue?

Comment 3 Dimitri Papadopoulos 2004-04-16 12:56:28 UTC
It's hard to tell. I've upgraded to test 2 and I have a hard time
working with it. I cannot login but as root, and I see lots of
messages from SELinux. Maybe some of the messages in /var/log/dmesg
are related to the old ones:

audit(1082119368.000.0): avc:  denied { getattr } for pid=17
exe=/bin/bash path=/proc/sys/kernel/modprobe dev= ino=4150
tcontext=system_u:object_r:sysctl_modprobe_t tclass=file

audit(1082119368.004.0): avc:  denied { write } for pid=130
exe=/bin/sysctl name=modprobe dev= ino=4150
tcontext=system_u:object_r:sysctl_modprobe_t tclass=file

In any case I don't see the original messages anymore.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-16 16:47:43 UTC
OK, resolving for now. SELinux messages are generally related to the
policy package.
