Description Felix Bellaby 2007-11-21 13:36:57 EST
Description of problem:

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


How reproducible:

check audit.log on autofs startup.

Summary log:

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/automount (automount_t) "create" to (var_run_t).

Raw log:

avc: denied { create } for comm=automount egid=0 euid=0 exe=/usr/sbin/automount
exit=-13 fsgid=0 fsuid=0 gid=0 items=0 name=autofs.fifo-net pid=10382
scontext=system_u:system_r:automount_t:s0 sgid=0
subj=system_u:system_r:automount_t:s0 suid=0 tclass=fifo_file
tcontext=system_u:object_r:var_run_t:s0 tty=(none) uid=0 

Probably need to update the selinux permissions to allow creation of a fifo
wherever automounter is trying to create one.
Comment 1 Ian Kent 2007-11-25 23:48:54 EST
The failure to create the fifos just means that changing
debug logging level, on the fly, from the command line won't
be available so autofs should continue to function normally.

This update is also waiting in F8 testing.

Bulk closing a old selinux policy bugs that were in the modified state.  If the
bug is still not fixed.  Please reopen.
