Whooops - A new kernel problem

Hey, FYI the latest and greatest kernel,

   FC3-2.6.11-1.14_FC3, for the i386 kernels broke several
things (for me at least on a Dell Inspiron 2600)....

[I am -not- seeing the same problems on the X86_64 version for an Athlon 3500+]

I might suggest NOT running update for now.... YMMV.

One such entry:
Apr 11 19:22:47 OCIDell audit: Installing Audit Module:
Apr 11 19:22:47 OCIDell audit: insmod: can't read 'auditmodule': No such file or directory
Apr 11 19:22:47 OCIDell audit:
Apr 11 19:22:47 OCIDell audit: Starting /usr/sbin/auditd:
Apr 11 19:22:47 OCIDell audit: SNARE audit daemon: I cannot connect to the audit module via the file
/proc/audit. Audit module not yet loaded?
Apr 11 19:22:47 OCIDell audit: Try installing the audit module using: insmod auditmodule: No such file
or directory

  However rebooting on the Prior kernel, 2.6.10-1.770_FC3, (i386) returns everything
to normal, i.e. audit works.

Secondly, this kernel wacked the wireless subsystem, in some fashion.

  Old Kernel,  "iwlist wlan0 scan"  works fine, blowing the ESSID it see's.
under the new kernel it gives me:

"wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning."

Boot back on the old kernel, it is just working fine, including the wireless scan.

  I can neither confirm of deny the wireless on the X86_64,
as I don't have it installed.

    But, I can confirm I am *not* seeing the "audit" problem with x86_64,
and I am with the i386.

   And, the wireless, a nDis Driver, is failing miserably under
the new kernel as well, but boot on the old one, and both
these issues go away.

So, Heads Up. It is recreatable.

It could be, but if it were, _you_ would never know. ;)

Could I be a part of a weird plot with the NSA and Aliens using SELinux and parallel computing and my computer to create an Intelligent Supercomputer that will rule the world?

Shoot, Mork! we need a more subtle approach, the earthlings are catching on!

Nanu Nanu.

UHHHH--forget it--just remembered, that was the dream I had last night about the Dwarf blue Girl from the 7th planet of Zwqqvvzzz--never mind.

I remember her!

Careful, she is on the rebound from James T Kirk....

 I am not sure I would want to follow his act,
   I hear James is a "High Risk" Category type...

[ Remember, he cried like a Baby when Spock Died, 'nough said ! ]

Just a note to say "THANKS Guys/Girls for being here". I read a lot--post seldom. Still trying to figure out these "zombie" SELinux features--

Me too, and I think the real trick is.. [the remainder of this sentence has been
censored for your own safety, Comrade -- Zombiware (tm)]


but I like SELINUX. Somebody tell NSA thanks-- even though they have devious dark plans for protecting computer OS's.

Oh, no need to... you posted into -this- list.

They are -well- aware of you, and your opinions, by now.

Remember the TIA slogan: "In God we trust, all else we Monitor!".


(Caution: Any similarity between this post, and reality,
  is -purely- coincidental...
   OK, with the exception of the Kirk-Spock thing.)

The SE Linux code is clean and reasonably easy to read, it has been checked
by many people. If you are concerned about back-doors in kernel code then
you should be concerned about the device drivers for less popular hardware
and other code that doesn't get much attention.
