Description Daniel Walsh 2009-03-23 16:03:05 EDT
Description of problem:

Why is devicekit-disk creating /dev/sdg1?  I don't know of a reason for creating files under /dev?

If this is a temporary file it should be created in /var/run/devkit

type=AVC msg=audit(1237836883.196:2384): avc:  denied  { create } for  pid=27130 comm="touch" name="sdg1" scontext=system_u:system_r:devicekit_disk_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=system_u:object_r:device_t:s0 tclass=file

avc generated using palimpsest

There's several places where DK-d does this:

                /* TODO: when we add polling, this can probably be removed. I have no idea why hal's
                 *       poller don't cause the kernel to revalidate the (missing) media
                touch_str = g_strdup_printf ("touch %s", device->priv->device_file);
                g_spawn_command_line_sync (touch_str, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL);

The touch calls are gone in DeviceKit-disks-004
