Description Tenshi 2009-03-23 02:59:48 EDT
This is an error that showed up in the "SE Linux Troubleshooter"... The error has not happened again, so far, but maybe is a good idea to send it to you guys to make Linux better than it already is. Linux ROCKS Windows DROOLS!


SELinux is preventing ntpd (ntpd_t) "read write" unconfined_t.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by ntpd. It is not expected that this access is
required by ntpd 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.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-03-31 11:06:38 EDT
Are you using Konsole?  Kde is leaking file descriptors, if you ran a command like service ntpd restart or run an rpm/yum transaction from a Konsole that restarted ntpd you could see an AVC like this.  

I will reassign to kde if you confirm you used the Konsole.
Comment 2 Tenshi 2009-04-01 13:14:38 EDT
I use GNOME.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2009-04-01 15:01:53 EDT
Most likely happened when using a gui or consolehelper.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-11-18 07:47:53 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

I have already fix this in F10 selinux-policy.
