SELinux is preventing udev-acl.ck "getattr" access on

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by udev-acl.ck. It is not expected that this
access is required by udev-acl.ck 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.

allow consolekit_t udev_tbl_t:file getattr;

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-11 12:43:32 UTC
Please make sure udev-acl has the right context

restorecon -R -v /lib/udev

And update to the latest policy will fix this problem.
