Description Bill Nottingham 2007-10-12 15:05:46 EDT
Description of problem:

audit(...): avc: denied { search } for pid=1269 comm="salsa" name="sbin"
dev=dm=0 ino=<whatever> scontext=system_u:system_r:alsa_t:s0-s0:c0.c0123
tcontext=system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0 tclass=dir

Prevents restoring of mixer settings on startup

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


Additional info:

When running in enforcing=0, there is an additional avc:

audit(): avc: denied {execute_no_trans) for pid=1473 comm="salsa"
path="/sbin/alsactl" dev=dm-0 ino=<whatever>
tcontext=system_u:objecvt_r:alsa_exec_t:s0 tclass=file
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-10-15 13:20:08 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-targeted-3.0.8-22.fc8
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-15 22:41:02 EDT
Still broken.

avc: deinied {execute} for pid=1936 comm="salsa" name="alsaunmute" dev=dm-0
ino=<whatever> scontext=system_u:system_r:alsa_t:s0-s0:c0.c1024
tcontext=system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0 tclass=file

Presumably alsaunmute needs alsa_exec_t.
