Description Robbie Harwood 2014-07-28 16:21:20 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon from write access on the directory /var/lib/dbus.

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

If you believe that console-kit-daemon should be allowed write access on the dbus 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 console-kit-dae /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2014-07-30 09:13:56 UTC
Any chance to re-test it in permissive mode to see what console-kit-d wants to write here.

Comment 2 Robbie Harwood 2014-07-30 22:17:21 UTC
It's a sporadic failure, but I will provide more information if it happens again.

Comment 3 Robbie Harwood 2014-09-29 13:52:27 UTC
Removing needinfo because I have installed over this machine.
