Comment 1 Steven Dake 2010-07-30 21:05:53 UTC
corosync should fail gracefully when it is denied permissions via selinux, not segfault.

Comment 3 Angus Salkeld 2010-12-22 04:21:57 UTC
I don't suppose anyone knows the version of selinux-policy that
this can be reproduced on?

I have tried installing these two (dated in April):
http://download.devel.redhat.com/brewroot/packages/selinux-policy/3.7.17/5.el6/noarch/selinux-policy-3.7.17-5.el6.noarch.rpm
http://download.devel.redhat.com/brewroot/packages/selinux-policy/3.7.17/5.el6/noarch/selinux-policy-targeted-3.7.17-5.el6.noarch.rpm

and running the "testcpg" program (it runs fine - no crashes).

Comment 4 Angus Salkeld 2011-01-10 03:51:21 UTC
I have committed the following patch which I believe fixes the problem:
http://marc.info/?l=openais&m=129306520313001&w=2

I need to confirm that this indeed is the issue. I have not reproduced the
original problem using selinux.
