Description of problem:
Looking at /var/log/messages, I have *6 MBs* worth of the same error 

Apr  5 16:39:12 duron fam[3103]: listen: Permission denied

I remember turning on sgi_fam on the Services pref panel the first 
day I installed F2t2, but haven't seen the var/log/messages log till 
today to find out that (SELinux again?) is misbehaving.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on SGI_fam in the Services pref panel

fam doesn't work with selinux due to the way its implemented. Thats
why its disabled by default now. If you need it you have to disable

We're working on a long-term fix for this, but that won't be finished
for fc2.
