Description James Morris 2006-09-07 23:28:34 EDT
Description of problem:

Many AVC denials are generated when installing a xen guest under current
rawhide.  We need to fix policy and apps so that there are none, and xen
can be properly tested with SELinux.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to current rawhide, with SELinux in enforcing mode.
2. run xenguest-install
Actual results:

see logs

Expected results:

no avc messages or errors

Comment 2 James Morris 2006-09-07 23:32:35 EDT
The hotplug log file has the wrong context:

# ls -Z /var/log/xen
-rwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:xend_var_log_t xend-debug.log
-rw-r--r--  root root system_u:object_r:xend_var_log_t xend.log
-rw-r--r--  root root system_u:object_r:var_log_t      xen-hotplug.log

Leading to:
[2006-09-07 23:14:58 xend 2418] ERROR (SrvBase:87) Request wait_for_devices failed.

Latest xen logs have been moved to /var/log/xen which has been labeled
appropriately in the latest policy.  Also xend now has permission to ptrace all
domains and the sys_ptrace capability.

Fixed in selinux-policy-2.3.13-3
