Description cgrim 2009-08-28 18:25:07 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing dhclient "getcap" access on <Unknown>.

Podrobný popis:

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

Povolení přístupu:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug
report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi) against this package.

Comment 1 cgrim 2009-08-28 18:48:34 UTC
This alert is showen to me after each login after upgrade from F11 to Rawhide.

But during update of selinux-policy-targeted package it showed this message:
  Installing     : selinux-policy-targeted-3.6.28-8.fc12.noarch                                                                                                                     libsepol.scope_copy_callback: polkit_auth: Duplicate declaration in module: type/attribute polkit_var_lib_t (No such file or directory).
libsemanage.semanage_link_sandbox: Link packages failed (No such file or directory).
semodule:  Failed!

Probably there should be some relation. Have I badly installed selinux-policy-targeted package or is that problem elsewhere?

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2009-08-28 18:56:31 UTC

# semodule  -r polkit_auth

Should fix both problems.

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.28-9.fc12.noarch
