MAC module problem - FreeBSD

I'v tried to load a few MAC modules and try that security system. This oddity appeared in dmesg: "mac_policy_modevent: can't load mac_lomac policy after booting module_register_init: MOD_LOAD (mac_lomac, 0xc056f4dc, 0xc1c285c0) error 16" Can someone here tell me what that means? Is there maybe a security focused list that are more appropriate for questions like this? /Andreas -- A: Because it fouls the order in which people normally read text.

    Default MAC module problem


    I'v tried to load a few MAC modules and try that security system. This
    oddity appeared in dmesg:

    "mac_policy_modevent: can't load mac_lomac policy after booting
    module_register_init: MOD_LOAD (mac_lomac, 0xc056f4dc, 0xc1c285c0) error
    16"

    Can someone here tell me what that means? Is there maybe a security
    focused list that are more appropriate for questions like this?

    It means exactly what it says. You can't load mac_lomac after having
    booted the system. You can see from mac_lomac(4) that you can put it in
    your kernel configuration, and that you load it from loader.conf. If you
    don't want to rebuild your kernel, you can use the module, if you have
    it.

    Ah! That's "loader.conf", not rc.conf as where I put it! Sorry. I must
    have been *very* tired when I read that and put it in the rc.conf file.

    Thanks.
