-> selinux-policy-targeted
Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2007-02-25 13:07:48 EST
Am not sure why SELinux is denying someone to talk to the ConsoleKit daemon? For
the record, gdm, and in the future /bin/login, xinit, kdm, xdm, wdm and so forth
needs to be able to speak to ConsoleKit over D-Bus. Also, apps in a desktop
session will need to be able to speak to it.

Tell me, is the default policy to lock down access to all D-Bus services and
only open it up bit for bit? Because that's not very nice; what happens if a
third party package provides a system-wide D-Bus service? Thanks.

Seems fixed in selinux-policy-2.5.6-1.fc7

This one now:

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2007-03-06 12:57:43 EST
This is not a problem in selinux-policy-2.5.8-1

If you audit2why this avc, what does it say?
Comment 6 Tom London 2007-03-06 16:15:57 EST
Sorry, I didn't notice that this one was reassigned to selinux-policy.

To avoid confusion, I'll open a new issue.

audit2why/audit2allow implicate consolekit.
