Also SEtroubleshooter oes wild on my system and I had to disable it. Once an episode is encountered it should not bring up a balloon for each policy infringement. After several thousand denials the system gets a bit overloaded like a DOS condition. I hope it can be reformed to not put up a balloon with every episode.

With the new version it should have an option to keep the notification from showing when you've got setroubleshoot open already. I haven't checked whether that is in the version in rawhide yet, but John Dennis got that added after an RFE bug I posted for it.

I just checked and this did make it into the latest rawhide version, see /etc/setroubleshoot/setroubleshoot.cfg and look for [alert]. Setting use_notification = browser_hidden should do the trick. That will help with the annoyance during a major selinux problem.

That sounds like a worthy change. I ignored the balloon for awhile but the younger 6 yr. old grandchild would ask what was coming up when she was using the computer. The error causing the repeat balloon seemed to be this error. I checked the quiet checkbox for now and the balloon and system resources seems to be reduced.

SELinux is preventing gam_server (gamin_t) "sys_ptrace" to <Unknown> (gamin_t).

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by gam_server. It is not expected that this
access is required by gam_server and this access may signal an intrusion
attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the
application is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.
