Description Alexey Torkhov 2008-04-07 10:01:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Strange selinux deny when starting cyphesis:

host=nat.tortilla.ru type=AVC msg=audit(1207576272.916:80): avc: denied { read }
for pid=6252 comm="cyphesis" name="file_contexts" dev=sdc3 ino=951041
tcontext=unconfined_u:object_r:file_context_t:s0 tclass=file

host=nat.tortilla.ru type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1207576272.916:80): arch=40000003
syscall=5 success=no exit=-13 a0=9cef018 a1=8000 a2=1b6 a3=9cfe3b0 items=0
ppid=6251 pid=6252 auid=502 uid=493 gid=487 euid=493 suid=493 fsuid=493 egid=487
sgid=487 fsgid=487 tty=(none) comm="cyphesis" exe="/usr/bin/cyphesis"
subj=unconfined_u:system_r:cyphesis_t:s0 key=(null) 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start.
Actual results:
Selinux deny.

Expected results:
All is fine.

Additional info:
File with inode 952524 mentioned in first error is
/etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts. I can't imagine why cyphesis
is trying to access it.
Comment 1 Wart 2008-04-09 12:38:24 EDT
Thanks for the info.  I saw this once or twice before, but didn't know what
caused it.  I'm cleaning up the policy for F-9 right now and will take a look at
this again once the F-9 issues are fixed.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 02:46:21 EST
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
