Description Leslie Brooks 2008-05-07 21:10:34 EDT
Description of problem:
SELinux popped up a block message saying that smartd had violated the rules.  I
suspect that smartd is behaving properly and that SELinux is at fault, but I
haven't the slightest bit of proof.

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

How reproducible:
 Don't know; I have had the system running for fifteen or twenty minutes and it
just popped up.  However, it didn't happen previously when I had the system
running far longer.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Probably crucial, run 'hdparm -S 6 /dev/sdb'; this causes the drive motor to
spin down after 30 seconds of inactivity.  I did _not_ do that previously but
_did_ do that today, and got the error shortly after that.
2. run 'hdparm -C /dev/sdb' to confirm that it has spun down
3. Some minutes later the error message popped up.
Actual results:
 See attached SELinux report.

Expected results:

Additional info:
This is with the April beta; I will try to reproduce it with this month's
Preview release.
