Description Robert Scheck 2005-09-20 18:21:34 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm getting - since introducing libsetrans - unnecessary avc denied messages:

  audit(1127126904.541:268): avc:  denied  { search } for  pid=22987 
comm="saslauthd" name="/" dev=selinuxfs ino=270 scontext=root:system_r:
saslauthd_t tcontext=system_u:object_r:security_t tclass=dir


  audit(1126900488.829:250): avc:  denied  { search } for  pid=5725 comm="httpd" 
name="/" dev=selinuxfs ino=270 scontext=root:system_r:httpd_t tcontext=system_u:
object_r:security_t tclass=dir

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Do different things with saslauthd and httpd, but I can't really say, what 
action causes which message.

Actual results:
Unnecessary avc denied messages. This bug report looks to be related to "Re: 
NetworkManager wants security_t:file read..." on fedora-selinux-list (https://
www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-selinux-list/2005-September/msg00070.html). And 
are you sure, that your comment is the better one (rather Stephen Smalley's 
suggestion), anyway?

Expected results:
No avc denied messages any longer - in this case, of course ;-)
