Description Bill Nottingham 2006-09-01 16:52:26 EDT
Description of problem:

I get lots of:

audit(1157135283.604:30): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=18194
comm="pam_console_app" name="/" dev=autofs ino=6665
tcontext=system_u:object_r:autofs_t:s0 tclass=dir

from when pam_console looks for things in /mnt.

Either a) we should tell pam_console not to do that (things are in 
/media these days) or b) we should fix the policy.

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

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2006-09-04 02:43:59 EDT
a) is the right thing to do if we don't care much about upgrades from older FCs
where someone can have their customized mounts in /mnt which he expects to be
owned by console user.

But I'd say that policy should allow pam_console_apply to read and change things
in /mnt anyway.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2006-09-18 15:18:44 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.3.14-4
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-08-22 10:14:50 EDT
Should be fixed in the current release
