rsync does not work at all
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:15 EST
Description of problem:
rsync does not work locally or from remote box to local box
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Installed F8T2 and then yum updated to latest rsync
Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt to rsync a directory or files
see attached strace
Created attachment 191161 [details]
strace of rsync failure
It worked fine in F8T1
John all I can see is a bunch of Permission Denied errors.
Does it crash, or does it just exit?
Looks like this is an SELinux policy problem. Updating to
selinux-policy-targeted-3.0.7-7.fc8 makes rsync start working for me again.
John, does this help you?
Simo, it doesn't do anything... you enter the command, hit return, get a
prompt... no crash or error message.
I would have expected SETroubleshoot to pop up with an error... nothing in
/var/log/messages either. I'll try the latest selinux-policy and report back.
confirmed--new policy fixes the problem. I should have looked in audit.log,
there were AVC errors there. It still looks like setroubleshoot is not doing
its job, but that is for a different bug once I have time to look into it.
Changing component to selinux-policy. I'm guessing this bug can be closed, but
I'll leave for Dan W to confirm
