Description Mathieu Bridon 2015-10-27 06:17:19 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried creating a VM in GNOME Boxes.
SELinux is preventing qemu-system-x86 from 'create' accesses on the sock_file debian8.monitor.

*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests   *******************

If you want to allow qemu-system-x86 to have create access on the debian8.monitor sock_file
Then you need to change the label on debian8.monitor
# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'debian8.monitor'
where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: qemu_var_run_t, svirt_home_t, svirt_image_t. 
Then execute: 
restorecon -v 'debian8.monitor'

*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that qemu-system-x86 should be allowed create access on the debian8.monitor sock_file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep qemu-system-x86 /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2015-10-27 06:28:38 EDT
Proposed as a Blocker for 23-final by Fedora user bochecha using the blocker tracking app because:

 SELinux prevents GNOME Boxes from creating a virtual machine, which I would qualify as "basic functionality" for that application.

This violates the "Default application functionality" release criteria.

Couldn't reproduce, see bug 1275603 comment 2.
