:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/bash from 'execute' accesses on the file /usr/sbin/ldconfig.
:*****  Plugin leaks (86.2 confidence) suggests  ******************************
:If you want to ignore bash trying to execute access the ldconfig file, because you believe it should not need this access.
:Then you should report this as a bug.  
:You can generate a local policy module to dontaudit this access.
:# grep /usr/bin/bash /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -D -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
:*****  Plugin catchall (14.7 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that bash should be allowed execute access on the ldconfig file by default.
:Then you should report this as a bug.
:You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
:allow this access for now by executing:
:# grep sh /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-04 14:58:38 UTC
Why is networkmanager running ldconfig?

Comment 2 Miroslav Grepl 2012-06-04 15:23:05 UTC
Actually I believe this is caused by wicd. There is another bug with needinfo on this.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-04 15:24:01 UTC
I guess it is easier to just allow it to execute it,   If it tries to write something then we have a problem.
