Description Tim Waugh 2008-02-12 09:53:35 EST
Description of problem:
In Fedora 9, the hal_lpadmin script included in hal-cups-utils uses the output
from lsusb.  As a result, we need to add "miscfiles_read_hwdata(cupsd_config_t)"
to policy/modules/cups.te.

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

How reproducible:
100% with hal-cups-utils-0.6.14-1.fc9

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Plug in an HP USB printer
Actual results:
type=AVC msg=audit(1202825512.698:150): avc:  denied  { search } for  pid=8087
comm="lsusb" name="hwdata" dev=sda3 ino=671236
tcontext=system_u:object_r:hwdata_t:s0 tclass=dir
type=AVC msg=audit(1202825512.698:150): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=8087
comm="lsusb" name="usb.ids" dev=sda3 ino=671239
tcontext=system_u:object_r:hwdata_t:s0 tclass=file
type=AVC msg=audit(1202825512.703:151): avc:  denied  { getattr } for  pid=8087
comm="lsusb" path="/usr/share/hwdata/usb.ids" dev=sda3 ino=671239
tcontext=system_u:object_r:hwdata_t:s0 tclass=file

Expected results:
No AVC message.

Additional info:
Tested patch attached.

For the time being this only affects Fedora 9.  I may release a hal-cups-utils
update for Fedora 8 in the future.
