snmpd fails to start with SELinux targeted enforced
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:10 EST
Description of problem:
On FC3 + "official" updates, the snmpd daemon fails to start when selinux
targeted is enforced - this breaks snmp reporting to a distant mrtg server.
snmpd used to work OK on this system until some (automatic) update and
continues to do so if we do a "setenforce 0".
[root@example ~]# service snmpd start
Starting snmpd: /usr/sbin/snmpd: error while loading shared libraries:
libbeecrypt.so.6: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a full Fedora Core 3 + updates as for July 15th,2005, with SELinux
policy targeted enforced (as default).
2. Make sure you have a valid /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file
3. Do a service snmpd start.
snmpd doesn't start when "setenforce 1".
snmpd DO start when "setenforce 0".
snmpd should start when "setenforce 1".
execstack -c libbeecrypt.so.6:
