Description Ivan Valdes Riesco 2009-09-06 19:37:40 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing devkit-disks-he "setuid" access on <Unknown>.

Detailed Description:

[devkit-disks-he has a permissive type (devicekit_disk_t). This access was not

SELinux denied access requested by devkit-disks-he. It is not expected that this
access is required by devkit-disks-he 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) Please file a bug
report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi) against this package.

Comment 1 Ivan Valdes Riesco 2009-09-06 19:42:43 UTC
happened just after booting. things i did before restart that may have caused this:
-added a fat32 partition of one of my hd's to fstab so that it would load automatically (forgot to create the mount point though, xD)

Comment 2 Ivan Valdes Riesco 2009-09-06 19:55:39 UTC
ok, sort of fixed, just removed the defauts option on the fstab, so that it wouldnt let execute things from my mounted fat32 drive... :D

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-07 11:19:10 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.30-5.fc12.noarch
