Description of problem:
hddtemp init fails at boot with:
/etc/sysconfig/hddtemp: line 7: /dev/hda: Permission denied

There's no problem running hddtemp /dev/hda from the cmd line, and suspect
selinux is denying permission?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@morgansmachine iputils]# hddtemp -v
hddtemp version 0.3-beta15

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add /dev/hda to /etc/sysconfig/hddtemp
2.Set init to run at boot
Actual results:

Expected results:

How does your /etc/sysconfig/hddtemp look like?  The default one only has 4
lines but your error message says line 7.  Also, please look for related "avc:
denied" messages in /var/log/messages and post them here.

What about smartd, do you happen to be starting it at boot time too?  If this is
a selinux issue, I'd expect it to fail the same way.

smartd running fine.

nothing in messages for "avc:denied".

/etc/sysconfig/hddtemp :

# hddtemp(8) daemon options.  Add at least the disk(s) you want to monitor here.

The way you have added /dev/hda to the config file means that it will try to
execute /dev/hda, not add it to hddtemp's options.  Remove everything starting
from the "### ..." line and append /dev/hda to HDDTEMP_OPTIONS, like:

HDDTEMP_OPTIONS="-l /dev/hda"

Ooops.  Thanks.

You've closed "notabug", but perhaps a brief comment at the head of
/etc/sysconfig/hddtemp to the effect of your note above would stop others making
the same mistake?
Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2006-06-04 07:06:59 EDT
Yep, already added in my local working copy, will be in the next package revision:

# hddtemp(8) daemon options.  Add at least the disk(s) you want to monitor to
