Description Dave Malcolm 2006-09-20 19:34:10 UTC
Description of problem:
[david@brick sbin]$ sudo /sbin/service setroubleshoot start
Starting setroubleshootd:                                  [  OK  ]

However, /var/log/setroubleshoot/setroubleshootd.log shows multiple
serious-looking errors:
(a) one of these for each plugin:
2006-09-20 15:29:26,330 [plugin.ERROR] failed to load httpd_enable_homedirs plugin
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/setroubleshoot/", line 312, in
    mod = imp.load_module(module_name, *imp.find_module(plugin_name, [plugin_dir]))
  File "/usr/share/setroubleshoot/plugins/", line 20, in ?
    from setroubleshoot.Plugin import Plugin
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/setroubleshoot/", line 123
    rpm = get_rpm_nvr_by_file_path(self.path.strip('"')))
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
(repeats for every plugin, predictably)

(b) 2006-09-20 15:29:27,933 [avc.WARNING] audit socket (/var/run/audit_events)
failed, error='No such file or directory', retry in 60 seconds
which does indeed repeat and fills up the log.

No troubleshoot popups appear and package is broken :-(

Do you want me to break out these two separate problems into different bug
reports?  The third problem (c.f. Summary) is that I was unaware of this
breakage and thought that the service was running and was merely failing to
generate AVCs :-(

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

How reproducible:
