Description Juan Quintela 2006-10-12 15:10:33 EDT
Description of problem:

When running xm console over ssh, sometimes

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

It happens with all versions, including


How reproducible:

It only happens with some versions of the policy.  It can take from several
seconds to a couple of minutes, never more.  There are some policy versions
where it works.  Changing xen or kernel makes the bug appear/dissappear.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run kernel-xen
2. Start a guest with xm create -c <guest name>
3. Wait less than 5 minutes, and see that the console is stopped.

Actual results:

Consola gets stopped, each time that I type a key, I get a message on dmesg like:

audit(1160678614.283:210): avc:  denied  { send } for  saddr=
src=22 daddr= dest=52501 netif=eth0
tcontext=system_u:object_r:security_t:s0 tclass=packet

Expected results:

Console working without hanging over ssh.

Additional info:

Workaround: running xm console over screen or cat inside ssh sometimes works.

Please try this with the latest policy, which has fixes for this.

Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

All fixed in the current release
