What are the AVC's and why are you opening a new bug?

Comment 2 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2011-02-24 18:18:51 UTC
No AVC present this happens in earlies stages @ boot up since it does not make down with dmesg so much be something dracut related 

What new bug are you referring to I commented the systemd-readahe stuff on the old one and opened a new one for this message? ( two seperated issues )

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2011-02-24 18:24:35 UTC
Well not sure this is an SELinux issue, but a systemd one.  The comment through me off.

This looks like systemd-readahead tried to create a labeled file on a file that does not exist and reports and error.

Comment 4 Lennart Poettering 2011-02-24 22:29:55 UTC
Johann, which process is logging this? is that systemd itself, or systemd-readahead? can you somehow get me the precise error emssages?

Comment 5 Lennart Poettering 2011-02-25 00:51:10 UTC
Under the assumption that this is PID1 i think I have now fixed this. My guess is that the dead symlinks udev maintains in /dev were the source of the problem. systemd git now ignores ENOENT when iterating through /dev and relabelling. We should do that anyway to fix a race when /dev gets modified while we iterate through it and a file doesn't exist anymore when we try to relabel it although it was still there when we enumerated it.
