SELinux prevents fprint from taking fingerprint
Last modified: 2009-11-18 08:09:36 EST
Unlocking the screen with fingerprint auth does not work in GNOME. It produces three SELinux warnings (see attachments)

If you update to the latest policy these should be taken care of. But none of the SELinux denials are blocking anything.
fprintf is running in permissive mode which means that SELinux is reporting what it would have denied. If you look at the AVC you will actually see success=yes, which means the access was not denied.
The Avcs are fixed in selinux-policy-3.6.12-34.fc11.noarch
But that does not mean the fprintd will work for you :^(
Ok, after installing the newest package from koji and having a closer look I found the finger print auth actually works, but not all the time... :/
I still get the "sys_ptrace" (Error 3 above) message btw (the other two are gone now)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
