Description David Juran 2013-08-29 15:58:30 UTC
Description of problem:
I noticed that abrt wasn't catching crashes and /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern wan't set to let abrt catch anything. So I tried restarting abrtd (systemctl restart abrtd.service) and got this AVC
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/bash from 'read' accesses on the directory /var/crash.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that bash should be allowed read access on the crash directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep abrt-harvest-vm /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
