Description Andrew Farris 2008-04-07 22:48:46 EDT
AVC occurs when attempting to Restart or Shutdown while in Gnome (user does have
correct polkit authorization) and also the same occurs from GDM.  I've restored
context on the file:

-r--rw-r--  500 87 unconfined_u:object_r:polkit_var_lib_t:s0


SELinux is preventing console-kit-dae (consolekit_t) "read" to
./org.freedesktop.hal.device-access.sound.override (polkit_var_lib_t).

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by console-kit-dae. It is not expected that this
access is required by console-kit-dae 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:

Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore
the default system file context for

restorecon -v './org.freedesktop.hal.device-access.sound.override'

If this does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this access.
Instead, 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.

policy module

audit2allow creates this module which works to let me initiate reboot from
gnome menu.

module consolekitrestartfix 1.0;

require {
	type polkit_var_lib_t;
	type consolekit_t;
	class file read;

#============= consolekit_t ==============
allow consolekit_t polkit_var_lib_t:file read;
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2008-04-08 10:57:53 EDT
This should be in the policy.  If you have multiple policy files in

Please remove all but the largest number.

I think this is the bug.
Comment 3 Andrew Farris 2008-04-08 18:58:24 EDT
Thanks Dan you were right, there was a left over policy.22 and policy.23.
