Description Andrew Farris 2004-04-28 21:30:37 EDT
Description of problem:
A normal user is not permitted to play a cd due to incorrect device
context.  The default policy labels the cd device (/dev/hdc in my
case) as fixed_disk_devict_t.  When the device is relabeled as
removable_device_t the cd can be played.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
policy-1.11.2-18
policy-sources-1.11.2-18

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install default policy
2. fixfiles relabel
3. play cd as normal user (cdp or cdplay)

Actual results:
playing cd is denied with this audit:
Apr 26 15:09:24 CirithUngol kernel: audit(1083017364.035:0): avc:
denied  { ioctl } for  pid=10129 exe=/usr/bin/cdp path=/dev/hdc dev=hdb8
ino=66203 scontext=user_u:user_r:user_t
tcontext=system_u:object_r:fixed_disk_device_t tclass=blk_file

Expected results:
playing of the cd would be permitted

Latest policy and udev changes should create the cdrom device with the
correct context.
