Description Chris Brand 2007-06-27 15:28:45 EDT
Description of problem:
irqbalance causes lots of selinux denials.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
selinux-policy-targeted 2.3.7-2.fc5
irqbalance 2:0.55-4.fc5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the components listed above
2. Monitor /var/log/messages
Actual results:
Every 10 seconds, another of these is added to /var/log/messages :
Jun 27 12:29:10 dredd kernel: audit(1182972550.001:21118): avc:  denied  {
search } for  pid=1905 comm="irqbalance" name="net" dev=proc ino=4026531864
tcontext=system_u:object_r:proc_net_t:s0 tclass=dir

Expected results:
No selinux messages shoudl be appearing in /var/log/messages.

Additional info:
Looks very similar to bugs 219739 and 219606, but those are fc6 and this is fc5.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-06-28 06:55:48 EDT
We are no longer shipping updates for fc5 you should be able to execute

grep proc_net_t /var/log/messages | audit2allow -M myirqbalance
semodule -i myirqbalance.pp 

Which will customize your policy to add this rule, or upgrade to fc6/fc7
