Does anyone know why boinc-client has started to try and read b11:0? Selinux is not keen on allowing it.

The only thing I get googling b11:0 is something related to ANSI, Safety of Machinery (what a coincidence)

Never got to grips with SELinux... always LAN issues (defining ins and outs), so relying on the Linux firewall in the router.

Could you tell where exactly that file is and its type (regular or some special file)?

I think I found it in /run/udev/data/b11:0 and it looks like udev config info for the dvd (the Sekinux context is the same). Any idea why boinc-client wants this access?

If it looks like a disk drive, BOINC might be evaluating available disk space. We had a problem in Windows recently where, instead of simply reading file sizes, BOINC opened the file for reading and triggered a full virus scan.

Unless BOINC is installed in DVD I don't think it should be interested in how much disk space is available there. I can't really come up with good explanation though.

What distro this is?

Ok. I'll try to put Fedora in a VM some day and hopefully see why it's poking files in /run.

Until then just ignore the error.
