Description Joachim Frieben 2015-10-29 19:02:31 UTC
Description of problem:
I ran firefox in a sandbox using flash.
SELinux is preventing fusermount from 'write' accesses on the directory /.

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (89.3 confidence) suggests   ******************

If you want to allow use to fusefs home dirs
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'use_fusefs_home_dirs' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
Do
setsebool -P use_fusefs_home_dirs 1

*****  Plugin catchall (11.6 confidence) suggests   **************************

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