Description Gérard Milmeister 2007-04-01 21:49:45 UTC
I get the following errors on my notebook with targeted policy enabled:

Apr  1 23:47:53 kodaly kernel: audit(1175464073.509:149): avc:  denied  {
connectto } for  pid=4294 comm="hald-addon-acpi" name="acpid.socket"
scontext=user_u:system_r:hald_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:system_r:initrc_t:s0

I used restorecon to reset the labeling of the files in /var, but the problem is
still present. The message appear about every 5 seconds.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-04-02 17:41:25 UTC
apmd must not be running in the write context on this machine.

On my machine I have the following:

# ps -eZ | grep apmd
system_u:system_r:apmd_t         2480 ?        00:00:00 acpid

ls -lZ /var/run/acpid.socket 
srw-rw-rw-  root root system_u:object_r:apmd_var_run_t /var/run/acpid.socket

# ls -lZ /usr/sbin/acpid
-rwxr-x---  root root system_u:object_r:apmd_exec_t    /usr/sbin/acpid

Comment 2 Gérard Milmeister 2007-04-02 17:50:27 UTC
It's acpid, not apmd. Here is what I got:

$ps -eZ | grep acpid 
system_u:system_r:kernel_t         62 ?        00:00:02 kacpid
user_u:system_r:initrc_t         7166 ?        00:00:00 acpid

$ls -lZ /var/run/acpid.socket 
srw-rw-rw-  root root user_u:object_r:var_run_t        /var/run/acpid.socket=

$ls -lZ /usr/sbin/acpid       
-rwxr-x---  root root system_u:object_r:apmd_exec_t    /usr/sbin/acpid*

Comment 3 Gérard Milmeister 2007-04-02 18:02:44 UTC
Also, starting acpid using /etc/init.d/acpid always sets the type of
acpid.socket to var_run_t, even if I previously restored it to apmd_var_run_t.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2007-04-02 18:12:17 UTC
getsebool -a | grep apm

Did you disable transition on acpid?

Comment 5 Gérard Milmeister 2007-04-02 18:41:39 UTC
Yes it was disabled. I enabled it again, and now everything seems to be as it
should. I don't know how it got changed at all.
