Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1270134
ecryptfs cannot mount home directory on login, SELinux preventing
Last modified: 2015-11-07 05:06:44 EST
Description of problem:
I think I have followed good instructions for building eCryptFS home directory and auto-mounting on login, but it does not work on fresh install of F22. I did this a long time ago (F18?) and it has broken on at least two upgrades, but not F22. On a fresh install of F22, however, I find yet another regression.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run through published instructions for setting up encrypted home and auto-mount on login (i.e. using ecryptfs-migrate-home). See bug 1199287, that's exactly the procedure I used.
2. Try to login
3. Home diirectory is not write-able.
Should work as it has for many years.
Long history of breaking after upgrades. Has policy just never been updated to allow this? I thought I had removed the local policy and was using the official policy. Using audit2allow over three iterations produces a workable local policy.

Well, okay, but I happened again immediately after upgrade to F23. I'll update the other but, but I cannot change the details on that one, so I'm also marking it here, too.
