Description Robert McLachlan 2007-12-05 18:37:12 EST
Description of problem: I was installing firestarter when the crash happened.

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

This was clearly meant to be assigned to module-init-tools, not intltool.
Comment 2 Jon Masters 2008-04-25 21:50:02 EDT
Found this bug when hunting down things assigned to the wrong account, refiled
it with dwalsh as it's SE Linux policy related.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-04-28 08:33:20 EDT
This has been fixed for months.
