Description Adam Williamson 2010-09-20 19:52:49 EDT

SELinux is preventing /lib64/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper "execute" access
on hald.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by dbus-daemon-lau. It is not expected that this
access is required by dbus-daemon-lau 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 Daniel Walsh 2010-09-22 17:21:01 EDT
Hal  is now being run as a dbus service?
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2010-09-22 17:24:48 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.9.5-3.fc14
Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2010-09-22 18:39:07 EDT
yes, hal is now bus-activated, lennart committed this change recently to make it work more smoothly with systemd. it's probably a sensible change worth keeping even though we reverted to upstart. Ubuntu has shipped hal this way for a long time.
