Description Petr Lautrbach 2009-04-30 12:31:36 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux denied access requested by accton. It is not expected that this access is required by accton 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. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
selinux-policy-3.5.13-57.fc10.noarch

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-04-30 12:39:40 UTC
Is accton run out of cron?

Comment 2 Petr Lautrbach 2009-04-30 13:14:01 UTC
It looks like cron.daily runs /etc/cron.daily/logrotate that runs /etc/logrotate.d/psacct with command /usr/sbin/accton /var/account/pacct

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2009-04-30 13:54:09 UTC
Cron is leaking an open file descriptor to inotifyfs which is causing this problem.

Reassigning.

You can ignore the error for now.
