Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

    SELinux is preventing /sbin/modprobe (insmod_t) "sys_nice" to <Unknown>

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 Daniel Walsh 2007-11-26 10:25:27 EST
This does not make sense it should have been allowed since 2.6.4-40

So something is wrong with your policy load.

Did something blow up on update?

You can try to reinstall the selinux-policy package.
