selinux policy prevents macbook's backlight from working
Last modified: 2008-07-02 15:07:24 EDT
Description of problem:
The SELinux policy concerning HAL prevents the macbook backlight's brightness
controls from working.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 9 on a macbook
2. Try to use the backlight controls
3. Restart haldaemon and see the selinux denials
Backlight controls do not work
Backlight controls should work with HAL's fdi policy.
I was able to add some selinux policies to get the backlight working (see
attached local.te file).
