Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214002
Syncing hardware clock fails upon reboot
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem:
during evert shutdown/reboot an audit message is displayed about denied request
to synchronize hardware clock.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
enable selinux and reboot
error message is displayed, request to synchronize hwclock is denied
the request should be allowed => no err message
Security policy is set to ´Permissive´

screenshot of the message
Looking at the message once more now I see that res=success, however the message
is anoying anyway.
This is an audit message and believe it or not this has nothing to do with
SELinux. Every time the hardware clock is changes the kernel generates an audit
message stating this. If you do not have audit running at the time the message
is generated, it goes to syslog.
So if you want to complain, complain to the audit package. :^(
