Description Radek Bíba 2006-08-30 11:24:55 EDT
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure hcid.conf to use /usr/bin/bluepin
2. launch something that requires pairing
3. enter a pin on your phone
Actual results:
log contains:
Aug 30 16:55:59 stinker hcid[3389]: pin_code_request (sba=SNIP, dba=SNIP)
Aug 30 16:55:59 stinker kernel: audit(1156949759.482:5): avc:  denied  { search
} for  pid=3404 comm="bluepin" name="gdm" dev=sda1 ino=4235674
tcontext=system_u:object_r:xserver_log_t:s0 tclass=dir
Aug 30 16:55:59 stinker hcid[3403]: PIN helper exited abnormally with code 256

The phone then said the PINs didn't match. When I disabled SELinux, everything
went OK - the dialog window popped up etc.

Expected results:
It should work even with SELinux in Enforcing mode.

An selinux-policy bug, then?
BTW the xserver_log_t directory in question is /var/gdm.
Comment 2 Radek Bíba 2006-09-19 11:54:58 EDT
Changing ownership :)
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2006-09-19 12:00:44 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.3.14-4
Comment 4 Radek Bíba 2006-11-02 17:04:27 EST
Not sure how relevant this bug is when FC5 still has selinux-policy-2.3.7-2.fc5
and FC6 obsoletes bluez-pin in favor of bluez-gnome (which doesn't have this
issue, btw). NEXTRELEASE or WONTFIX, whatever...
