Re: readahead / audit /selinux problem

I had the same problem. The problem is that the last week update of udev
dropped udev-084-floppy.patch, for some reason. Now, on every boot udev
creates a lot of /dev/fd0XXXX files with 000 permissions and with selinux
label default_t. There is patch in the upstream udev that I tried to apply and
it corrects the permissions but not the selinux label -- see

Maybe, it is worth to remark that my laptop is floppy-less.
