Description Roman Žilka 2013-03-12 10:09:02 UTC
With /proc and /sys restricted by grsec + non-root privileges, procps-3.3.6 fails the test "vmstat". It requires access to /proc/vmstat, /proc/slabinfo, /sys/block/sda, neither of which are available with grsec and FEATURES="userpriv".

The test succeeds on non-hardened kernel even with FEATURES="userpriv" (verified).

Reproducible: Always

In case you want more evidence:

# grep ^spawn sys-process/procps-3.3.6/work/procps-ng-3.3.6/testsuite/vmstat.log
spawn /boot/tmp/portage/sys-process/procps-3.3.6/work/procps-ng-3.3.6/vmstat
spawn /boot/tmp/portage/sys-process/procps-3.3.6/work/procps-ng-3.3.6/vmstat -a
spawn /boot/tmp/portage/sys-process/procps-3.3.6/work/procps-ng-3.3.6/vmstat -f

spawn /boot/tmp/portage/sys-process/procps-3.3.6/work/procps-ng-3.3.6/vmstat -p sda1

But as a non-root:
 $ for i in '' '-a' '-f' '-m' '-d' '-p sda1'; do echo -e '\n==============' vmstat $i; strace -e open,access vmstat $i; done

Comment 2 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2013-03-12 19:14:37 UTC
This looks like a duplicate of bug 404389, can you check?
Comment 3 Roman Žilka 2013-03-12 19:52:50 UTC
Bug 404398 is about /proc/something missing, because a kernel option is missing because of ( grsec || CONFIG_EXPERT ). In this case the /proc/something is there, but is restricted to root because of grsec.
Comment 4 Roman Žilka 2013-03-12 19:53:29 UTC
Two typos in two words: bug 404389 was what I meant, of course.
