I unplugged the card, unplugged the reader, then logged out.
Plugged back the reader, logged in (so I'm logged in after the reader was
Plugged the card back in.

Same error.

If you're running SELinux in enforcing mode, please close as dupe of bug 230155

If you're not logging in via gdm, please close as dupe of bug 228110

SELinux is enforcing and I'm using gdm.
But I'm doing "tail -f /var/log/audit/audit.log" and there are no messages when
the error occurs. Is it still a SELinux problem?
If it is, what can I do to enable this functionality (other than switching from
enforcing mode which I do not want to do)?

I'm not sure why SELinux is logging errors - that's also a problem in 230155...
Comment 7 Florin Andrei 2007-02-27 13:28:29 EST
Thanks, I'll watch the other bug then.
