Expected results:

Additional info:
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 AccessYou can
generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report against this package.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-12-06 10:19:40 EST
This is strange since the selinux-policy-2.6.4-57.fc7
policy should have this allow rule.

This looks like something went wrong during the update and the policy latest
policy is not loaded.

Could you try to reinstall the latest selinux-policy-targeted package or just

semodule -B /usr/share/selinux/targeted/base.pp

Should fix the problem.
