Description Gary Tierney 2016-09-21 20:05:04 UTC
Description of problem:

In current policy there is a login named system_u mapped to the system_u SELinux user.  This seems to be have used in the past to allow daemons like cronie to get a default context for a "system" user: https://github.com/henrysher/cronie/commit/e5280235809844f54d5956ec281472b63dcfc3f4

With a recent patch submitted to genhomedircon which removes the hardcoded user identifier (and a conditional which skips homedir context generation for that login) we now see a warning:

libsemanage.add_user: user system_u not in password file

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Steps to Reproduce:

Run genhomedircon with new patch

See http://marc.info/?t=147317021100002&r=1&w=2

Actual results:

A warning that no login exists for a user named "system_u"

Expected results:

No warnings

A temporary Rawhide scratch build with remove system_u can be found here -
