Description Radek Bíba 2016-09-05 06:28:03 UTC
*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that colord should be allowed read access on the hwdb.bin 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:
# ausearch -c 'colord' --raw | audit2allow -M my-colord
# semodule -i my-colord.pp

Comment 1 Milos Malik 2016-09-05 06:58:55 UTC
Could you switch the colord_t domain to permissive and collect all SELinux denials causes by colord?

# semanage permissive -a colord_t

For switching the colord_t domain back to enforcing, please use following command:

# semanage permissive -d colord_t

Comment 2 Radek Bíba 2016-09-05 07:10:34 UTC
Sure, I've executed the recommended command. There apparently are no other denials, though, because this is the only one announced by SELinux troubleshooter.

I might add that the denial appeared in sealert right after I logged in to Gnome. I didn't do anything in the color management screen in Gnome settings, and if I do open the screen and click around, no new (permitted or not) denial is logged. Is there anything else I could do to help scope this issue?

Comment 3 Milos Malik 2016-09-05 07:48:45 UTC
Following command should find all today's SELinux denials:

# ausearch -m avc -m user_avc -m selinux_err -m user_selinux_err -i -ts today

List of today's denials

OK, here they are.

Those involving aaargh-0.7.1-py2.7.egg probably won't appear anymore and aren't bugs. sealert recommended restoring the context of that directory, and I did that.
