Description Carl Roth 2010-09-26 15:00:56 UTC
Description of problem:

The new(ish) selinux plugin for mock creates /proc/filesystems using a temporary file and bind mount; this temporary file is created by default with 0600 permissions.

As a result, processes inside the chroot running in userland cannot read /proc/filesystems.  This breaks some spec files that need to read /proc/filesystems (e.g. for the 'mlocate' or 'updatedb' tool).

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

mock-1.1.5-1.fc13

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a spec file
2. in the %build stanza, add 'wc -l /proc/filesystems'
3. try to build the SRPM using mock
  
Actual results:

SRPM build fails with permissions error

Expected results:


Additional info:

I think the fix is simple (at least, I implemented it with a supplemental mock plugin).  In the selinux preinit hook, there should also be something like

  self.rootObj.mountCmds.append("chmod go+r %s" % self.filesystems)

This opens up the read permissions on the bind-mounted file so that userland processes can read it.

Rather than shell out again, I thought we could just set the permissions after the temp file was created, using os.chmod(). Would you try the attached patch ad see if it fixes your problem?

Comment 2 Carl Roth 2010-09-28 15:01:40 UTC
I verified that this patch works on my system.  Note that the permissions you chose:

  stat.S_IWUSR|stat.S_IRUSR|stat.S_IRGRP|stat.S_IWGRP|stat.S_IROTH|stat.S_IWOTH

are probably too broad.  The actual /proc/filesystems entry AFAIK is only

  stat.S_IRUSR|stat.S_IRGRP|stat.S_IROTH

updated patch with modified permissions

Ahh, good point. I've attached a modified patch which sets permissions to read-only for everyone. 

I'll try and get an update out this week

Comment 4 Clark Williams 2010-10-15 03:25:51 UTC
