Description Ben Levenson 2004-03-24 18:24:17 UTC
Description of problem:
'service gpm restart' produces the following avc denial:

avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=3597 exe=/usr/sbin/gpm name=localtime
dev=dm-0 ino=924810 scontext=root:system_r:gpm_t
tcontext=root:object_r:etc_t tclass=file

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

from audit2allow:
allow gpm_t etc_t:file { read };

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-24 18:43:15 UTC
Actually, /etc/localtime should probably be readable by all domains.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2004-03-24 18:55:29 UTC
This looks like a labeling problem.

/etc/localtime should be locale_t

Who create localtime?

How could it get mislabeled?

Comment 3 Ben Levenson 2004-03-24 20:20:36 UTC
switching timezones with 'system-config-{date,time}' rewrites
before: system_u:object_r:locale_t
after: root:object_r:etc_t

adding system-config-date owner to Cc

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2004-03-24 20:46:10 UTC
If instead of removing the localtime, you could copy over it.  This
would maintain the security context.


Comment 5 Brent Fox 2004-03-24 21:03:37 UTC
Should be fixed in system-config-date-1.7.3-1 in dist-fc2-hold.

Comment 6 Ben Levenson 2004-03-24 22:14:27 UTC
file context is preserved with s-c-d-1.7.3-1.
