SELinux is preventing /sbin/ldconfig "read" access on

Detailed Description:

[ldconfig has a permissive type (ldconfig_t). This access was not denied.]

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

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-16 13:07:26 UTC
What were you doing when you got this to happen?

Comment 2 Peter F. Patel-Schneider 2009-09-16 15:14:05 UTC
I was booting from the S2 Live ISO on a USB key.

The message came up as soon as the graphical interface was available.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-16 16:08:21 UTC
Ok I am allowing this access for other reasons.  Makes no sense though.

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.32-1.fc12.noarch

Comment 4 Peter F. Patel-Schneider 2009-09-16 16:42:55 UTC
Yes, I agree that the access appears to be silly.  Perhaps pushing this back to whoever is responsible for ldconfig is possible?

Thanks for putting in place the fig leaf.
