Description of problem:

The following update yesterday:

Apr 02 10:28:17 Updated: selinux-policy - 3.0.8-97.fc8.noarch
Apr 02 10:29:05 Updated: selinux-policy-devel - 3.0.8-97.fc8.noarch
Apr 02 10:30:29 Updated: selinux-policy-targeted - 3.0.8-97.fc8.noarch

Produces thousands:

 *** Denials ***
    unconfined_u system_u (lnk_file): 21020 times
    unconfined_u unconfined_u (capability): 36765 times

of the following:

audit(1207153826.829:57212): avc:  denied  { read } for  pid=991
comm="restorecon" name="local" dev=sda8 ino=130824
tcontext=system_u:object_r:usr_t:s0 tclass=lnk_file

audit(1207153953.539:77487): avc:  denied  { sys_resource } for  pid=1201
comm="semanage" capability=24
tcontext=unconfined_u:system_r:semanage_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tclass=capability

The above link is the following:

# ls -li /opt
total 12
130988 drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 2008-01-15 16:47 Adobe
130824 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   10 2007-10-24 08:19 local -> /nfs/local

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2008-04-08 03:06:42 UTC
You can allow this for now by executing 

# audit2allow -M mypol -i /var/log/audit/audit.log 
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.0.8-98.fc8

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2008-04-09 16:51:27 UTC
Those denials are gone, but restorecon during the update is still trying to walk
/opt/local, which points to /nfs/local which is a nfs mounted filesystem. 
Really shouldn't be operating on network filesystems.

Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2008-11-16 03:05:46 UTC
This seems to be fixed.
