Re: fedora-list Digest, Fedora Preview 11 ATI Driver install crash IRQ



Hope I am doing this right. Installed Fedora Preview 11 (which looks amazing by the way) and installed the RPM Fusion Drivers for ATI. After config and reboot, crashes with several messages like
avc: denied {search} for pid=176 comm = "readahead_t:s0 tcontext=system_u: object_r:sysctl_irq_t:s0 tclass=dir type=1400 audit(1241493896.514:47286):
This is on a Core i7 system with X58 Board and ATI 4870X2 ASUS BRAND... Help?

The meanings of the colors used are described in the yum.conf(5) man
page.  For example:

 color_list_installed_extra
     The colorization/highlighting for pacakges in list/info
     installed which has no available package with the same name and
     arch.  Default is ‘bold,red’.  See color_list_installed_older
     for possible values.

I get this error when trying to update kmod-nvidia package:

Test Transaction Errors:
file /lib/modules/2.6.27.21-78.2.41.fc9.x86_64/extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko from install of

kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.21-78.2.41.fc9.x86_64-173.14.15-1.fc9.5.x86_64

which appears to be telling me that it cannot upgrade because the package it is trying to replace has a file by the same name. Isn't that the point of an upgrade?
I assume I am misinterpreting this.

Thanks,
Steve

If you are using those addresses it won't work because those aren't routable.
And your dsl modem with have to be doing nat. If those aren't the correct
addresses, then you are lying to us and that is not a good way to get
your problems solved.

Hi Xavior,

I don't know about those images your talking about, but I do know of a great
resource for TUX.

Maybe you can do a Google search for "tux gallery cartoon" or something of
that nature.  Happy hunting!

Another issue is using capacitors that are close to the operating
voltage of the system.  12V and use 15V capacitors.  This doesn't give
any overhead for voltage spikes or surges caused by charging and
discharging circuits.

Remember that many circuit boards are multi-layer now so be careful if
you are working with a thru-hole circuit board.

Have fun.

How is that going to work if /usr/sbin isn't already in your path?

It does work. Try it yourself.

Yeah. F7 is end of life and no longer supported. It does not get
updates of any kind. ;(

I would suggest you look at upgrading asap.

You'll note that /usr/sbin *is* in your path and the man page for which
says:

DESCRIPTION
      Which takes one or more arguments. For each of its arguments it
prints
      to stdout the full path of the executables that would have been exe-
      cuted when this argument had been entered at the shell prompt. It
does
      this by searching for an executable or script in the directories
listed
      in the environment variable PATH using the same algorithm as bash(1).

So if you hadn't had /usr/sbin in your PATH, then "which lsof" would
have returned nothing - so it isn't useful for this situation...

[sam sam ~]$ echo $PATH
/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
[sam sam ~]$ which lsof
/usr/sbin/lsof
[sam sam ~]$ export PATH=/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/sbin
[sam sam ~]$ which lsof
/usr/bin/which: no lsof in (/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/sbin)

Hi;

How do I set up rc6 or whatever, so that I get a clean shutdown for
FireFox and Epiphany?

FireFox is started by my session manager and I often use Epiphany -b as
a specialized bookmark editor on my panel.  Whenever I login to start a
new session FireFox and Epiphany gives a standard warning/option of
restoring my previous session.  I want to eliminate those warnings
without having to specifically close those programs before logging out.

I'm attempting to mount a loop device (a ro file) at boot using fstab.
My fstab entry works fine from the command line, but it fails at boot
time due to a selinux avc error. I assume this is due to incorrect
file context. The file is under a nonstandard top level directory, so
I need to specifically assign it the correct file context, which I
would do if I could figure out what it ought to be.

Where do I look on the system to discover what is the correct file
context required by mount at boot time?

The file and context are:
$ ls -lZ /HUGE/get/iso/Fedora-09-i386-DVD/Fedora-09-i386-DVD.iso
-r--r-----  root share unconfined_u:object_r:default_t:s0
/HUGE/get/iso/Fedora-09-i386-DVD/Fedora-09-i386-DVD.iso

The fstab line is:
/HUGE/get/iso/Fedora-09-i386-DVD/Fedora-09-i386-DVD.iso /mnt/Fedora-09-i386-DVD iso9660 loop,ro,gid=share
0 0

The command line that works is:
# mount /mnt/Fedora-09-i386-DVD

The boot-time error messages are:
Mounting local filesystems:
/HUGE/get/iso/Fedora-09-i386-DVD/Fedora-09-i386-DVD.iso: Permission
denied [FAILED]
Mounting other filesystems:
/HUGE/get/iso/Fedora-09-i386-DVD/Fedora-09-i386-DVD.iso: Permission
denied [FAILED]

The dmesg error is:
type=1400 audit(1241535886.437:4): avc:  denied  { read } for
pid=1335 comm="mount" name="Fedora-09-i386-DVD.iso" dev=sdb2 ino=1922
scontext=system_u:system_r:mount_t:s0
tcontext=unconfined_u:object_r:default_t:s0 tclass=file

My selinux policy is:
# rpm -qa 'selinux-policy-targeted*'
selinux-policy-targeted-3.3.1-132.fc9.noarch

My selinux status is:
# sestatus
SELinux status:                 enabled
SELinuxfs mount:                /selinux
Current mode:                   enforcing
Mode from config file:          enforcing
Policy version:                 22
Policy from config file:        targeted

My os is:
# uname -r
2.6.25-14.fc9.i686

I have the following boolean unset because I wish to utilise selinux
file context to restrict which files can be mounted:
# getsebool allow_mount_anyfile
allow_mount_anyfile --> off

Interestingly, I did discover that the following command allows
subsequent boot-time mounts to succeed:
# chcon -t mount_exec_t /HUGE/get/iso/Fedora-09-i386-DVD/Fedora-09-i386-DVD.iso

But I am unsure whether this is the correct solution.

Where do I look on the system to discover what is the correct file
context required by mount at boot time?
