hald-addon-acpi selinux and endless audits

SELinux question for FC5 system running targeted policy (20), enforcing.

Noticed when looking for some unrelated issues in /var/log/messages that I have been getting these every 5 seconds for as long as the box is up:
  • audit(1159888794.283:1512): avc: denied { connectto } for pid=16057 comm="hald-addon-acpi" name="acpid.socket" scontext=user_u:system_r:hald_t:s0 tcontext=system_u:system_r:initrc_t:s0 tclass=unix_stream_socket
One might hope this is just a mislabled socket or somesuch but /var/run/acpid.socket seems to have the correct label:[list]
srw-rw-rw- root root system_u:object_r:apmd_var_run_t /var/run/acpid.socket[/llist]
and restorecon does nothing with this.

Not sure what impact this denial has on hald (this system is a laptop that is on AC power most of the day), but filling my logs with this stuff makes debugging other issues rather more difficult. Any hints appreciated...

Fedora is a continuously developing OS and SELinux is also being developled.
Fedora must be kept updated with the bugs fixes and SELinux must be part of those updates, as well as the kernel. So yum update.

Then if errors are still present
ask at the new selinux-list.
Not many know selinux and that list can build up for all to see and learn.


If one wants to continue in the old ways, then Fedora is NOT the distro to be using.
It is not a static, polished OS. (It is an adventure, an experiment, a never ending story.)
Try Slackware 11, it will let you do anything (and anything can be done to it.)

Do the Math
