Description Rich Fellinger 2015-11-14 17:34:05 EST
Description of problem:
This problem accurs because selinux is enabled.  It can be reproduced bu installing the NVIDIA drivers.

Why can't nvidia-modprobe have the access to the nvidiactl directory by default?
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/nvidia-modprobe from 'add_name' accesses on the directory nvidiactl.

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

If you believe that nvidia-modprobe should be allowed add_name access on the nvidiactl directory 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 nvidia-modprobe /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 3 Rich Fellinger 2016-01-25 15:01:20 EST
I became aware of this from a desktop notification shortly after installing NVIDIA's driver.  I was never in front of the machine when the notifications poped up.  This happened 2 or three times before I reported this bug.  I do not know how nvidia-modprobe was invoked when this denial occured and I did not see futher occurances of this while fedora 22 was still installed on the machine.  I now have fedora 23 installed and have decided to disable selinux so I don't think I will be able to determine how nvidia-modprobe was invoked when this denial occurs.

This issue should probably be closed.
