Description Don Vogt 2010-01-30 17:47:13 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/pulseaudio "read" access on /dev/snd/controlC0.

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by pulseaudio. It is not expected that this
access is required by pulseaudio 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://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

Comment 1 Don Vogt 2010-01-30 17:54:14 UTC
I was trying to play firefox/flash video, not in sandbox. there was another bug that stopped write access, that i am not reporting separately. I  have been getting many similar bugs when using sandbox -X which I reported in bug #560186.
