Description Charles Barto 2018-05-23 15:48:33 UTC
Description of problem:
Just updated my system, looks like mabe a policy update or gnome shell update.
SELinux is preventing gnome-session-c from 'map' accesses on the chr_file /dev/nvidiactl.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that gnome-session-c should be allowed map access on the nvidiactl 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 'gnome-session-c' --raw | audit2allow -M my-gnomesessionc
# semodule -X 300 -i my-gnomesessionc.pp

Comment 1 Stephen Tweedie 2018-05-24 10:52:04 UTC
I'm also seeing this on the same selinux policy version (selinux-policy-targeted-3.14.1-25.fc28).  gdm fails to start and I get a boot-to-crash ("something went wrong" splash screen from gdm on boot).

"dnf downgrade selinux-policy-targeted" took me back to selinux-policy-targeted-3.14.1-21.fc28.noarch and I can boot to graphical login again.

I experienced this issue this morning, updating from Fedora 27 to Fedora 28 on my workstation PC. Same selinux-policy-targeted version.

NVIDIA driver version: nvidia-driver-390.59-1.fc28.x86_64

I'm using the package from negativo17.org, not the one hosted on RPMFusion.

$ getfattr -d -m ".*" /dev/nvidiactl
getfattr: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names
# file: dev/nvidiactl

$ dnf repoquery -i nvidia-driver-390.59-1.fc28

I've worked around this by putting SELinux into permissive mode for the time being.
