Description Razvan Sandu 2005-07-16 15:25:00 UTC
Description of problem:
On FC3 + "official" updates, the snmpd daemon fails to start when selinux 
targeted is enforced - this breaks snmp reporting to a distant mrtg server.

snmpd used to work OK on this system until some (automatic) update and 
continues to do so if we do a "setenforce 0".

[root@example ~]# service snmpd start
Starting snmpd: /usr/sbin/snmpd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: 
Permission denied
[root@example ~]#

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a full Fedora Core 3 + updates as for July 15th,2005, with SELinux 
policy targeted enforced (as default).
2. Make sure you have a valid /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file
3. Do a service snmpd start.

Actual results:
snmpd doesn't start when "setenforce 1".
snmpd DO start when "setenforce 0".

Expected results:
snmpd should start when "setenforce 1".
