Description Eduard Benes 2008-03-04 10:03:20 EST
Setroubleshoot reports this alert after the machine resumes from suspend.


SELinux is preventing vbetool (vbetool_t) "mmap_zero" to <Unknown> (vbetool_t).

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by vbetool. It is not expected that this access
is required by vbetool 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 FAQ
(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 bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.
