Description Aleksey Nogin 2004-03-26 01:23:11 EST
When I run locate from staff_r, I get a bunch of messages of the form

audit(1080282148.605:0): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=7704
exe=/usr/bin/slocate name=xxxx dev=hda2 ino=1573113
tcontext=aleksey:object_r:staff_home_t tclass=lnk_file
audit(1080282148.620:0): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=7704
exe=/usr/bin/slocate name=yyyy dev=hda2 ino=1409767
tcontext=aleksey:object_r:staff_home_t tclass=lnk_file

(where names all match the pattern I was trying to locate) and slocate
does not print any matches.

I am currently using policy-sources-1.9-15

What are you trying to slocate?

Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 2004-03-26 14:37:09 EST
No matter what I try to locate, if I run "locate xyz" under staff_r,
it never works (and I have to run it under sudo to get any output)...
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-08 09:36:54 EDT
Added allow rule to policy-1.10-1-5
Comment 4 Aleksey Nogin 2004-05-07 14:41:54 EDT
This has been working correctly for a while now.
