Description Christopher M. Sawi 2010-04-23 23:56:50 UTC

SELinux is preventing /bin/login "write" access on /var/log.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by login. It is not expected that this access is
required by login and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also
possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is
causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

audit2allow suggests:

#============= local_login_t ==============
#!!!! The source type 'local_login_t' can write to a 'dir' of the following types:
# pam_var_console_t, pcscd_var_run_t, local_login_tmp_t, var_lock_t, tmp_t, var_t, var_auth_t, auth_cache_t, pam_var_run_t

allow local_login_t var_log_t:dir write;

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2010-04-26 08:14:03 UTC
Could you try to execute as root

semanage permissive -a local_login_t 

and then login via the console. Other avc's should be generated.
