Description Dave 2007-06-17 23:58:23 EDT
    SELinux is preventing /sbin/modprobe (insmod_t) "read write" to
    socket:[32250] (initrc_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /sbin/modprobe. It is not expected that
    this access is required by /sbin/modprobe and this access may signal an
    intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or
    configuration of the application is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access
    You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see
    http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 Or you can disable
    SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
    recommended. Please file a http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
    against this package.

Comment 1 David Teigland 2007-06-21 17:30:42 EDT
how is this related to cman or the cluster infrastructure?
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2007-12-17 16:57:30 EST
It is probably not, but it is a leaked file descriptor of some app that is
calling modprobe.

If you do a ps -eZ | grep initrc

You should be able to get the program that is executing modprobe, and we can
point this error to that package.
