[Pkg-fglrx-devel] Bug#514061: fglrx-atieventsd: atieventsd fails to load at boot

Package: fglrx-atieventsd
Version: 1:8-12-4
Severity: normal

I found that atieventsd fails to load at boot when running selinux in
enforcing mode.  It works properly when enforcing is disabled.  This has
been difficult to debug as running /etc/init.d/fglrx-driver after boot,
with enforcing enabled, does work as expected.  A grep of /var/log for
"atieventsd" does not return the error altough I get output to the
console during boot that atieventsd failed to load.  Perhaps the
relevant selinux policy entries just need to be worked out.  If so I
don't know if this would be a bug in fglrx or in the selinux policy
files.  Either way I would appreciate any suggestions on how to further
debug this issue as it would be nice to have atieventsd compatible with
