Description Alan Cox 2004-09-27 07:35:09 EDT
If I do an install with SELinux then I get /dev/initctl: permission
denied on the first boot of the installed system, some messages about
relabel errors for a udev file that flash past too fast to read
properly and then later I get mail for root containing more labelling

This does not seem to occur on a non SELinux install.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-27 12:07:36 EDT
Can you post the AVC messages?
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2004-09-27 12:19:35 EDT
I didn't see any AVC messages and none were logged
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-27 12:22:27 EDT
Was udev running correctly on a tmpfs /dev?
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2004-09-27 12:29:50 EDT
On whatever the install used. It was a straight new workstation
install. df says /dev is currently on tmpfs
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-11 16:39:14 EDT
Please try and reproduce on test3; I'm not seeing this in testing here.
Comment 6 Alan Cox 2004-10-22 08:39:16 EDT
Fixed in test3
