Description Patrick 2011-08-23 18:09:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Queuegraph doesn't have SELinux contexts set correctly, and therefore when
SELinux is active, queuegraph won't work through apache.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install queuegraph queuegraph-selinux
2. restart httpd
3. Surf to http://host/queuegraph
Actual results:
500 Internal Server Error

Expected results:
The normal queuegraph pages

Additional info:
This was already reported in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=731600 but reading the EPEL wiki I noticed that I should report it under product Fedora-EPEL hence this new bug. Please excuse the double entry. Also see bz566513 for a similar problem with mailgraph (also on EL6)

Here is the error in /var/log/httpd/error_log:

[Thu Aug 18 02:09:04 2011] [error] [client] (13)Permission denied:
exec of '/usr/share/queuegraph/queuegraph.cgi' failed
[Thu Aug 18 02:09:04 2011] [error] [client] Premature end of script
headers: queuegraph.cgi

Here is the error in /var/log/audit/audit.log:

type=AVC msg=audit(1313626144.344:719): avc:  denied  { execute } for  pid=3908

I noticed the fix in bz243302 and I tried them on queuegraph:

$ sudo chcon -t httpd_sys_script_exec_t /usr/share/queuegraph/queuegraph.cgi
$ sudo chcon -R -t httpd_sys_script_ra_t /var/cache/queuegraph
$ sudo chcon -R -t httpd_sys_script_ra_t /var/lib/queuegraph

Now queuegraph shows (empty) graphs.

It did not work for mailgraph on EL6 (see bz566513) but that is maybe because this is a fresh install and postfix has not been configured yet.

Please let me know if you need more information or would like me to test a new
