Description Kamil Páral 2023-03-06 12:09:55 UTC
Description of problem:
When I'm asked to add an online account and I click on Google, the initial setup window freezes and can't be used anymore. Waiting doesn't seem to help.

Tested with Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-38-20230305.n.0.iso

I'll try to attach logs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F38 Workstation, reboot
2. in the initial setup, click Google in Online Accounts step
3. freeze

This should be the system journal during the boot with the frozen initial setup.

Additionally - clicking the policy link on the privacy page has no effect.

(I'm testing with the same nightly image as Kamil.)

Comment 4 Kalev Lember 2023-03-06 13:35:25 UTC
I see avc denials in the log:

Mar 06 13:05:45 localhost-live audit[1796]: AVC avc:  denied  { create } for  pid=1796 comm="bwrap" scontext=system_u:system_r:xdm_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=system_u:system_r:xdm_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tclass=user_namespace permissive=0
Mar 06 13:05:45 localhost-live gnome-initial-setup.desktop[1796]: bwrap: Creating new namespace failed: Permission denied

That to me suggests that selinux is blocking bubblewrap which makes webkit sandboxing not work and breaks gnome-online-accounts. Can you try please if changing selinux to permissive mode makes it work?

Comment 5 Michael Catanzaro 2023-03-06 17:08:47 UTC
I agree with Kalev's assessment. Ideally WebKit should crash the main process rather than just hanging if bwrap fails, but regardless it's not a supportable situation. Reassigning to selinux-policy.

Isn't this a dupe of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2159230 ?

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2023-03-06 17:22:45 UTC
Yeah, pretty sure it is.
