Description Quentin Armitage 2010-03-01 15:19:17 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/asterisk "read" access on inotify.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by asterisk. It is not expected that this access
is required by asterisk 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 Quentin Armitage 2010-03-01 15:20:14 UTC
Additional info:

I executed /etc/init.d/asterisk start and then got the selinux warning.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2010-03-01 15:51:16 UTC
Miroslav add

fs_list_inotifyfs(asterisk_t) in F12

I verified it calls this in code.
