Description Barry Branham 2007-12-03 22:11:23 EST
Description of problem:
From SELinux:
SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp (cupsd_t) "getattr" to
/usr/share/snmp/mibs/.index (snmpd_var_lib_t).

Detailed Description:
SELinux denied access requested by /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp. It is not expected
that this access is required by /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp 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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Happens frequently when I print.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Print something
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
I have HPLIP (HP Imaging and Printing) v2.7.7 installed to support my wireless
HP Deskjet 6980 printer.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-12-05 08:15:07 EST
I will fix this in the next update, it was already fixed in Fedora 8 and Rawhide.

If you execute

chcon -t hplip_exec_t /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp*

It will fix it for now.

Fixed in selinux-policy-2.6.4-62.fc7
