[Linux-cluster] Corosync & SELinux in Fedora 12

Hi all,

Fedora12 has a full policy in it for Red Hat Cluster Suite and corosync, 
so it should be quite possible to run clustering with SELinux in 
enforcing mode now. It has been fairly well tested but there still could 
be some areas left that need attention, please report a problem in the 
Red Hat bugzilla if you see any unwanted AVCs.

There is currently one known problem (and that's why I'm ccing the 
openais list too), and that is if you run corosync without cman you 
could get some AVCs.

This problem is fixed in the selinux policy revision -43, but -41 is in 
Fedora GA so it might be a little while before it reaches the archives.

In the meantime the problem is easily fixed with a single command:

# chcon -t initrc_exec_t /etc/init.d/corosync
