SELinux is preventing /bin/bash from 'getattr' accesses on the blk_file /dev/sdc.

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

If you believe that bash should be allowed getattr access on the sdc blk_file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
Do
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep sh /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

put a video dvd in 2nd dvd drive.

Comment 2 Miroslav Grepl 2011-08-08 06:17:19 UTC
Please update to the latest selinux-policy

yum update selinux-policy --enablerepo=updates-testing

Comment 3 nomnex 2011-08-24 22:36:34 UTC
I got this error just after changing ownership of a newly formatted USB HD with Gnome-disk utility (on F-15 LXDE) which returned this error on formatting: (ext4)

Error creating partition

An error occured while performng an operation on "80 GB Hard Disk" (SAMSUNG MP0804H): The operation failed

Detail:


Error creating file system: helper exited with exit code 1: cannot create directory /var/run/udisks/job-mkfs-ZxDO88: No such file or directory

I believe both error are connected. This is for information, looking at the bug status.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2011-08-26 21:48:55 UTC
nomnex please open a separate bug.

Comment 5 nomnex 2011-08-29 08:00:30 UTC
Hello Daniel,

re-reading my comment, that's not very clear.

1. a bug about the issue is already opened
2. comment #3 was just to relate the detail of the operation I was performing when the SElinux bug report appeared.

The SELinux msg was: SELinux is preventing /bin/bash from 'getattr' accesses on the blk_file /dev/sdc. Since I was formatting a USB HD at that time (which returned a formatting error), I assumed both operation were connected?

I had never encountered this message before. selinux-policy-3.9.16-35.fc15

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2011-08-30 20:07:03 UTC
Yes, I believe you are seeing a different bug.  What AVC messages are you seeing?

Comment 7 nomnex 2011-09-01 04:17:27 UTC
http://danwalsh.livejournal.com/4780.html. It this the AVC (below) or do I need past the /var/log/audit/audit.log file?
