Description Aleksey Nogin 2004-05-15 03:17:07 EDT
Currently (policy-sources-1.11.3-3), /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix is
marked as system_u:object_r:sendmail_exec_t which causes problems as
sendmail.postfix tries to read postfix configs, which sendmail_t is
not allowed to do. I do not see any reason why
/usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix would need to be sendmail_exec_t; I believe
it should be postfix_exec_t instead.
Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 2004-05-15 05:00:03 EDT
On second thought, there is a reason for /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix to
be system_u:object_r:sendmail_exec_t. Hm, in that case we need to add

allow sendmail_t postfix_etc_t:dir { search };
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2004-06-02 15:05:53 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-strict-1.13.2-7.src.rpm
Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 2004-06-14 23:26:20 EDT
I ended up having to allow the following 3 things:

allow sendmail_t postfix_spool_t:dir { search };
allow sendmail_t postfix_etc_t:dir { search };
allow sendmail_t postfix_etc_t:file { read };
Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2005-09-04 20:39:13 EDT

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2005-09-06 16:54:33 EDT
I am adding them now.

Missed this update.
