Description Thomas J. Baker 2004-12-01 09:59:20 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)

Description of problem:
After updating to the Nov 30 rawhide, I can no longer mount any nfs

[root@katratzi tjb]# mount wintermute:/home /xxx
*** buffer overflow detected ***
[root@katratzi tjb]

and dmesg shows 

audit(1101912933.531:0): avc:  denied  { connect } for  pid=1889
exe=/sbin/portmap scontext=user_u:system_r:portmap_t
tcontext=user_u:system_r:portmap_t tclass=tcp_socket

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to mount or automount any nfs directories

Additional info:

It seems the buffer overflow is related to the portmap failure.
Comment 1 Thomas J. Baker 2004-12-01 15:53:55 EST
selinux-policy-targeted-1.19.8-2 does not fix the problem.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2004-12-02 15:11:41 EST
Ok, will try again with policy-1.19.10-3
Comment 3 Thomas J. Baker 2004-12-03 09:24:09 EST
selinux-policy-targeted-1.19.8-4 seems to fix the selinux error
messages but I still get buffer overflow on mounts so I guess this is
a kernel problem? I'll open a bug under the kernel next.
