Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing cockpit-session from 'search' accesses on the directory .Private.

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

If you want to allow polyinstantiation to enabled
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'polyinstantiation_enabled' boolean.

setsebool -P polyinstantiation_enabled 1

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

If you believe that cockpit-session should be allowed search access on the .Private directory 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 'cockpit-session' --raw | audit2allow -M my-cockpitsession
# semodule -X 300 -i my-cockpitsession.pp

Comment 1 Michael 2019-07-14 16:25:16 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
-> Migrate an unencrypted home directory to ecryptfs by using ecryptfs-migrate-home.
-> Reboot
-> Login
-> Login at cockpit web interface

Comment 2 Michael 2019-07-15 08:27:18 UTC
Used LUKS instead. Probably the better choice anyway...
