Hi All,

In the SELinux message:

  # ausearch -c 'pool' --raw | audit2allow -M my-pool
  # semodule -X 300 -i my-pool.pp

What is "pool"?

Many thanks, -T

From man ausearch

   -c, --comm comm-name
          Search for an event based on the given comm name. The comm name is the executable's  name  from
          the task structure.

What exactly pool is should be given by the rest of the message. You seem to have a program named pool that you tried to run. Or the system tried to run.

I kind of figured that. I was hoping someone knew what pool did

I doubt anyone can answer that question without looking at your system.

You can use dnf list installed *pool* to find out what package it comes from. Then, you can use dnf info to find out what it does. HTH, HAND.

This command just lists packages with "pool" in their name. There are quite a few packages providing binaries with entirely different names. And there can be binaries which are not part of a package at all.

Therefore I would start with which pool and maybe try to find the package by dnf provides $(which pool).

You can also try pool --help or man pool.
