Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-03-08 09:28:27 EDT
Description of problem:
pm-powersave creates /var/log/pm-powersave.log the first time a computer suspends. This is meant to be updated when one resumes, but fails because of context problems: The log file is created as var_log_t rather than hald_log_t

Restoring the context does not help, as after the next suspend/resume, the context is back to var_log_t.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend
2. Resume
3. See setroubleshoot
Actual results:
Two errors logged:
SELinux is preventing pm-powersave (devicekit_power_t) "getattr" to /var/log/pm-powersave.log (var_log_t).

SELinux is preventing pm-powersave (devicekit_power_t) "write" to /var/log/pm-powersave.log (var_log_t).

Expected results:
Should just work
