Description Scott Tsai 2009-11-18 00:19:03 UTC

SELinux is preventing /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/chrome-sandbox access to a
leaked /dev/tty1 file descriptor.

Detailed Description:

[chrome-sandbox has a permissive type (chrome_sandbox_t). This access was not

SELinux denied access requested by the chrome-sandbox command. It looks like
this is either a leaked descriptor or chrome-sandbox output was redirected to a
file it is not allowed to access. Leaks usually can be ignored since SELinux is
just closing the leak and reporting the error. The application does not use the
descriptor, so it will run properly. If this is a redirection, you will not get
output in the /dev/tty1. You should generate a bugzilla on selinux-policy, and
it will get routed to the appropriate package. You can safely ignore this avc.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-11-18 12:36:13 UTC
You can add these rules for now using

# grep avc /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
