SELinux is preventing /sbin/setfiles from 'relabelfrom' accesses on the file pm-powersave.log.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that setfiles should be allowed relabelfrom access on the pm-powersave.log file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep restorecon /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2011-06-06 08:01:24 UTC
What were you doing when this happened?

If you execute

# restorecon -R -v /var/log/pm-powersave.log

Can you reproduce it?

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2011-06-06 19:14:32 UTC
 matchpathcon  /var/log/pm-powersave.log 
/var/log/pm-powersave.log	system_u:object_r:devicekit_var_log_t:s0

It looks like the file can be created via devicekit or hal?  And we have different labels?

Comment 3 bud 2011-06-07 02:21:42 UTC
All I know is that the bug came up everytime I try to boot from hibernation.
If I executed:

# restorecon -R -v /var/log/pm-powersave.log

it doesn't really do anything. Even when I tried to hibernate after executing it, I still get that same bug again after hibernating.

Comment 4 Miroslav Grepl 2011-06-07 10:49:53 UTC
Ok, the file is re-created


        rm -f "$1"
        touch "$1"
        restorecon "$1"
        exec >> "$1" 2>&1


I thought we don't use HAL. 

The reporter,
is this a fresh install?

Comment 5 Miroslav Grepl 2011-06-07 10:52:45 UTC
I think you should use

-       restorecon "$1"
+       [ -x /sbin/restorecon ] && /sbin/restorecon "$1"

Comment 6 bud 2011-06-07 15:17:30 UTC
Well, I did install Fedora just recently if that's what you mean.

Comment 7 Jaroslav Škarvada 2011-06-07 15:45:07 UTC
Thanks Mirek,

it should be fixed in pm-utils-1.4.1-8. I tested it and I am getting no AVC on suspend/hibernate. Hope it helps the reporter also.
