Description Ulrich Drepper 2007-10-28 05:28:00 UTC
Description of problem:
I got AVC when using bluetooth to transport data from or to a phone.

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

How reproducible:
Haven't explicitly tried but seems to have happened multiple times.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I guess, try to connect phone and computer.
Actual results:
AVC, see below.

Expected results:

Additional info:
    SELinux is preventing hcid (bluetooth_t) "unlink" to <Unknown> (var_run_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by hcid. It is not expected that this access
    is required by hcid and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is
    also possible that the specific version or configuration of the application
    is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access
    Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials.  You could try to
    restore the default system file context for <Unknown>, restorecon -v
    <Unknown> If this does not work, there is currently no automatic way to
    allow this access. Instead,  you can generate a local policy module to allow
    this access - see http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385
    Or you can disable SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux
    protection is not recommended. Please file a
    http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi against this package.

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-10-30 02:26:35 UTC
hcid is trying to delete /var/run/bluetoothd_address

This is a new file?  Which does not have the correct label on it.  If you remove
the file and restart the service everything should work.  I will fix the labeling.

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.0.8-40.fc8.src.rpm
