SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/pgrep "getattr" access on /proc/.

Detailed Description:

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

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

audit2allow suggests:

#============= ksmtuned_t ==============
#!!!! This avc is a constraint violation.  You will need to add an attribute to either the source or target type to make it work.
#Contraint rule: 
allow ksmtuned_t kernel_t:dir getattr;

Comment 3 alan 2010-06-21 17:01:29 UTC
I'm using MLS merely because it looked like something interesting to turn on and test the effect of.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2010-06-21 18:11:31 UTC
Ok, any chance you can move to F13?

Comment 5 Miroslav Grepl 2010-06-21 19:12:01 UTC
Added to F13/RHEL6 policy.
