Description Brandon Ingalls 2014-12-18 22:01:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Fresh install of Workstation, installed ecryptfs-utils and then created a new user -- then added that user to the ecryptfs group. From there I used ecryptfs-migrate-home to migrate my user to ecryptfs.

When selinux is turned on my home directory is not mounted automaticaly when I login -- if I login through a terminal and then mount it using ecryptfs-mount-private I am able to accessmy files, then switch back to the display manager and login. If I then log out of all sessions the ecryptfs share is not unmounted and I see a selinux denial.
SELinux is preventing umount.ecryptfs from read, write access on the file /run/console/brandoni.

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

If you believe that umount.ecryptfs should be allowed read write access on the brandoni file 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 umount.ecryptfs /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
