Description Jesse Keating 2007-10-24 15:57:06 EDT
SELinux is preventing chkconfig (dhcpc_t) "search" to (user_home_dir_t).

Source Context:  system_u:system_r:dhcpc_t:s0
Target Context:  system_u:object_r:user_home_dir_t:s0
Target Objects:  None [ dir ]

avc: denied { search } for comm=chkconfig dev=dm-3 name=root pid=16995
scontext=system_u:system_r:dhcpc_t:s0 tclass=dir

When do you get this?
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2007-10-24 17:15:38 EDT
This happens if you run 'ifup' in /root/  (not sure about other locations,
didn't try them)
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-24 17:27:56 EDT
dhclient-script uses chkconfig to attempt to do some deranged service restarting
w.r.t. ypbind. I'm debating whether it should be taken out and shot repeatedly.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-24 17:30:53 EDT
(i.e., don't change policy just yet)
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-24 23:50:20 EDT
Oh, ick.  One vote for taking it out...
Comment 6 Jesse Keating 2007-10-25 09:03:34 EDT
I do too.

patch for this

Here's a patch that:

- doesn't actually use chkconfig to check the runlevel, as it's superfluous
(you can just check if ypbind is running)
- uses coreutils readlink rather than busybox (!)
Comment 8 David Cantrell 2007-10-25 12:46:19 EDT
Bill, thanks for the patch.  Really hate that script.  But it's slowly becoming
sane.  Or maybe I'm becoming insane.  I just recently gutted all of the dhcdbd
hacks in that script, so bring on more minus signs.
