Description Alexander Todorov 2011-05-12 06:55:25 UTC
Description of problem:
This morning after turning on my laptop I got a SELinux denial. 

Your system may be seriously compromised! /usr/sbin/NetworkManager tried to load
a kernel module.

node=(removed) type=AVC msg=audit(1305182229.634:19): avc:  denied  { sys_module } for  pid=1644 comm="NetworkManager" capability=16  scontext=system_u:system_r:NetworkManager_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:system_r:NetworkManager_t:s0 tclass=capability

node=(removed) type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1305182229.634:19): arch=40000003 syscall=54 success=no exit=-19 a0=d a1=8915 a2=bfea853c a3=bfea853c items=0 ppid=1 pid=1644 auid=4294967295 uid=0 gid=0 euid=0 suid=0 fsuid=0 egid=0 sgid=0 fsgid=0 tty=(none) ses=4294967295 comm="NetworkManager" exe="/usr/sbin/NetworkManager" subj=system_u:system_r:NetworkManager_t:s0 key=(null)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the system and log in into GNOME
2. I have a mobile 3G connection configured in NM. It is configured to connect automatically
Actual results:
NM connected to the mobile network but I got this SELinux error.

Expected results:
No errors

Additional info:
I haven't seen this before and indeed when booting with kernel-2.6.32-71.24.1 there's no error. I remember updating the kernel package yesterday so it might be it.
