Description Brian Millett 2004-04-24 20:46:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a)

Description of problem:
cat: /proc/self/attr/current: Invalid argument

is the message seen.

I am booting with selinux=0.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
2.read screen

Actual Results:  cat: /proc/self/attr/current: Invalid argument

Expected Results:  no message about "invalid argument"

Additional info:

code in rc.sysinit is:
# Check SELinux status
selinuxfs=`awk '/ selinuxfs / { print $2 }' /proc/mounts`
if [ -n "$selinuxfs" -a  "`cat /proc/self/attr/current`" != "kernel"
]; then
	if [ -r $selinuxfs/enforce ] ; then
		SELINUX=`cat $selinuxfs/enforce`
		# assume enforcing if you can't read it

I have seen the same "problem" on bootup....  

After bootup I decided to execute "cat /proc/self/attr/current" at 
the shell, and received the same:
   "cat: /proc/self/attr/current: Invalid argument".  

I checked the file and it exists with 0 bytes [rw-rw-rw-].  

I decided to create another file in my home directory [text.txt] with 
zero bytes [touch text.txt] and then execute "cat text.txt".... no 

Could this be related to something special about the "proc"

Looks similar to another FC Blocker bug:
