Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
systemd-208-4.fc20.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
I've done my testing for F20-Beta-RC4 AMI on EC2 only, but should be reproducible on bare metal as well 

1. Start F20-Beta-RC4 AMI on EC2
2. Do 'yum update'
3. Reboot

Actual results:
avc: denied messages

Expected results:
no denials

I can also see:
Nov  6 09:19:40 ip-10-62-83-156 systemd-tmpfiles: chmod(/var/log/journal) failed: Permission denied
Nov  6 09:19:40 ip-10-62-83-156 systemd-tmpfiles: chmod(/var/log/journal/7bd3c66a3d974c51b7a407a5bd3073b9) failed: Permission denied

in /var/log/messages

Comment 3 Peter Lemenkov 2013-11-07 10:38:31 UTC
Confirm that. I have to add the following rule:

https://github.com/lemenkov/selinux-rules/blob/master/auriga-systemd-tmpfiles.te

module auriga-systemd-tmpfiles 1.0;

require {
        type systemd_tmpfiles_t;
        type var_log_t;
        class dir { relabelfrom relabelto setattr };
}

#============= systemd_tmpfiles_t ==============
allow systemd_tmpfiles_t var_log_t:dir { relabelfrom relabelto setattr };

Comment 4 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2013-11-15 22:22:48 UTC
Hm, I get a slightly simpler result from audit2allow:

#============= systemd_tmpfiles_t ==============
allow systemd_tmpfiles_t var_log_t:dir setattr;

Either way, can we get this applied? This results in an annoying warning for probably all F20 installations?

Comment 5 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2013-11-15 22:23:44 UTC
systemd changed in http://cgit.freedesktop.org/systemd/systemd/commit/?id=4608af43.

Comment 6 Alexander Todorov 2013-11-19 09:30:48 UTC
Seen here:
http://beaker.fedoraproject.org/bkr/jobs/51

will re-test with the latest.

Comment 7 Daniel Walsh 2014-01-23 14:30:59 UTC
Looks like the latest code in F20 allows this.
