Description drago01 2005-07-29 02:20:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); de-DE; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
After updating audit to 0.9.19-2.FC4 I get an error after udev is started that says that it can't connot to the audit system.
I found this in the audit logs:

> type=AVC msg=audit(1122549673.001:7418105): avc:  denied  { create } for  pid=34 19 comm="hwclock" scontext=root:system_r:hwclock_t tcontext=root:system_r:hwcloc k_t tclass=netlink_audit_socket
> type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1122549673.001:7418105): arch=c000003e syscall=41 success =no exit=-13 a0=10 a1=3 a2=9 a3=42e8bfa9 items=0 pid=3419 auid=4294967295 uid=0 gid=0 euid=0 suid=0 fsuid=0 egid=0 sgid=0 fsgid=0 comm="hwclock" exe="/sbin/hwclock"

this results in an incorrect clock (+2h)
I am not using ntpd.
Timezonesettings are correct and it worked fine before the update.
I also found this in dmesg:
audit: initializing netlink socket (disabled)
Why is it disabled? hwclock trys to connect to it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot
2. look at the clock 
3. see that the clock is +2h 

Actual Results:  Clock is incorrect

Expected Results:  Clock should be correct
