Description Riccardo Melioli 2017-06-18 16:40:05 EDT
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing x86_energy_perf from read, write access on the chr_file msr.

*****  Plugin device (91.4 confidence) suggests   ****************************

If you want to allow x86_energy_perf to have read write access on the msr chr_file
Then you need to change the label on msr to a type of a similar device.
# semanage fcontext -a -t SIMILAR_TYPE 'msr'
# restorecon -v 'msr'

*****  Plugin catchall (9.59 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that x86_energy_perf should be allowed read write access on the msr chr_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 'x86_energy_perf' --raw | audit2allow -M my-x86energyperf
# semodule -X 300 -i my-x86energyperf.pp

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2017-11-16 13:43:25 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '25'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Note You need to log in before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
