Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-02-28 04:12:26 UTC
Description of problem:
I would often create a disk image under my normal user account, and then use it
with qemu-kvm (through virt-manager).

With SELinux set to enforcing, this triggers an access denial.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  sudo qemu-kvm -hda dfly.qc2

(use any other file you create with qemu-img)
Actual results:


SELinux is preventing qemu-kvm (qemu_t) "dac_override" to <Unknown> (qemu_t).

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by qemu-kvm. It is not expected that this access
is required by qemu-kvm 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:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(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 bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.
