Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-11 21:37:05 UTC
Why would arping read the /dev/console?  Is this happening on boot up?  Did setroubleshoot suggest this is a leaked file descriptor?

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2009-09-12 04:40:35 UTC
happens 4 times during boot up.

setroubleshoot not on that box (it's a very stripped down router with a small amount of flash, so no space for all its dependancies).

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-14 15:30:18 UTC
I have no idea what is doing with this so I will dontaudit.  

Could you check the system call to see if it is happening on exec?

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.31-4.fc12.noarch
