selinux barfes on new yum update (21 Jul 08) on gam_server
Last modified: 2008-11-17 15:35:45 EST
Description of problem:
with today's (21 Jul 2008) yum update, selinux has a cow regarding gam_server
SELinux is preventing gam_server (unlabeled_t) "read" to inotify (inotifyfs_t).
SELinux suggests typing restorecon -v 'inotify' to fix. There is no inotify?
What is it talking about? How about real messages that tell the exact path of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Policy RPM selinux-policy-3.3.1-78.fc9
It reproduces itself about 5 times per second.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Watch stupid alert messages make your desktop unusable as they come several
times per second.
System gets tested? This is the second bad yum update in four days (last was
bad xulrunner update).
Created attachment 312285 [details]
output of sealert -l b115b681-c98f-449d-9e5f-f2fc7123666a
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.3.1-79.fc9
Can this be closed now? I don't think it is a problem anymore for several months
If you confirm a fix, you can close the bug.
