Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 198068
SELinux outdated - prevents system from starting
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
After updates of Jul 8th
Many avc messages
Xorg / dbus execmem, avahi , nautilus,
Desktop - session screen wanted default (missing), Nautilus splash scerrn hung,
kick back into logon screen.
TTY2 to root and set selinux=permissive, rebooted
Need SELinux policy updated to reflect many chnages in FC6T1
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3 times - same thing before setting SELinux to permissive.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum update and reboot
Desktop not functional
Created attachment 132118 [details]
dmesg for last boot plus last 30 messages
Created attachment 132192 [details]
dmesg after SELinux update July 10th
After SELinux-polcy update of July 10th, set to enforcing, and relable on
reboot, most avc messages removed but Desktop still failed.
1. At logon popup for default session still there.
2. Nautius splash screen hangs, click on it, Desktop goes back to Logon screen.
3. Set to permissive and reboot.
4. Desktop come up.
The dmesg shows 2 avc messages - 1 for reconstore and 1 for meticty (execmem).
Since execmem is a global setting, it must be a bug in meticity.
I will file a bug on meticity and ref to this one.
restorecond should not be a problem and will be fixed shortly. Your remaining
problem is metacity which is reported in #197910 So closing this as a
duplicate of that bug.
You can turn on the allow_execmem boolean to allow you to run with SELinux in
setsebool -P allow_execmem=1
