Description Jeremy Katz 2006-09-11 13:34:30 EDT
The lvm tools aren't being allowed write or getattr perms for lvm_etc_t -- I
expect that we probably do want to allow this (or alternately, /etc/lvm/.cache
should be labeled differently)

This leads to SELinux avcs on kernel upgrades
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2006-09-11 16:26:31 EDT
This should be labeled lvm_medata_t

ls -lZ /etc/lvm/.cache 
-rw-------  root root system_u:object_r:lvm_metadata_t /etc/lvm/.cache

Any idea how this got mislabeled?  Did you recreate the file without using lvm
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-09-11 16:35:05 EDT
Not that I know of.  But since I've only seen it on my laptop, I'm willing to
believe it's something spurious to do with how I go through rawhide daily ;)
