Description Joachim Frieben 2010-08-19 07:16:16 UTC

SELinux is preventing /bin/login "create" access on root.

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

SELinux denied access requested by login. It is not expected that this access is
required by login and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also
possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is
causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2010-08-23 17:34:39 UTC
Is your /root directory labeled var_run_t?

ls -lZd /root

Comment 2 Joachim Frieben 2010-09-02 04:51:30 UTC
> ls -lZd /root
dr-xr-x---. root root system_u:object_r:admin_home_t:s0 /root/

Attributes stemming from selinux-policy-targeted-3.9.1-2.fc14. After the update, filesystems have been fully relabeled.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2010-09-02 15:48:08 UTC
Ok this is caused by a change in systemd.

You can add these rules for now using

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

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.9.2-1.fc14
