Description Cristian Ciupitu 2009-05-18 14:05:30 EDT
Description of problem:
My system is loop mounting some ISO files using /etc/fstab and I'm getting SELinux denials from hal-storage-mount.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Loop mount an ISO file marked as public_content_t using /etc/fstab:
/mnt/newBACKUP/Software/Linux/Fedora/Fedora-10-i386-DVD/Fedora-10-i386-DVD.iso  /mnt/misc/Fedora-10-i386-DVD  iso9660  loop,ro  0 0
2. (Re)Boot the system
Actual results:
SELinux denial errors:
node=hermes.lizeanunet.tld type=AVC msg=audit(1242667555.104:16): avc: denied { getattr } for pid=2765 comm="hal-storage-mou" path="/mnt/newBACKUP/Software/Linux/Fedora/Fedora-10-i386-DVD/Fedora-10-i386-DVD.iso" dev=sdc3 ino=573907783 scontext=system_u:system_r:hald_t:s0 tcontext=unconfined_u:object_r:public_content_t:s0 tclass=file
node=hermes.lizeanunet.tld type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1242667555.104:16): ch=40000003 syscall=196 success=no exit=-13 a0=8c817f0 a1=bfca46dc a2=4d2ff4 a3=2 items=0 ppid=2173 pid=2765 auid=4294967295 uid=0 gid=0 euid=0 suid=0 fsuid=0 egid=0 sgid=0 fsgid=0 tty=(none) ses=4294967295 comm="hal-storage-mou" exe="/usr/libexec/hal-storage-mount

Expected results:
There shouldn't be any SELinux denial errors, because I'm not doing anything special.

Additional info:
I'm using the following packages:

I have migrated to Fedora 11 since then, but I haven't had any problems anymore. I'm currently using selinux-policy-3.6.12-72.fc11.noarch.rpm and selinux-policy-targeted-3.6.12-72.fc11.noarch.rpm.
