Description Joe Zeff 2011-09-04 14:57:48 UTC
SELinux is preventing /var/lib/boinc/projects/www.worldcommunitygrid.org/wcg_dsfl_6.19_i686-pc-linux-gnu from 'getattr' accesses on the file /proc/<pid>/stat.

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

If you believe that wcg_dsfl_6.19_i686-pc-linux-gnu should be allowed getattr access on the stat 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 wcg_dsfl_6.19_i /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Joe Zeff 2011-09-04 15:00:50 UTC
I am also getting alerts because it wants search access.  I tried following the instructions to set policy for both of these problems, but within less than a minute there were 26 more alerts about the same issue.

Comment 2 Miroslav Grepl 2011-09-05 11:06:55 UTC
Not sure why this would be needed. 

Do you know which BOINC project causes this issue? 

Also does everything work fine?

Comment 3 Joe Zeff 2011-09-05 17:03:23 UTC
Everything else on my computer works fine.  Some of the Einstein@home projects give me alerts, but running restorecon once clears them up.  This project is the Drug Search for Leishmaniasis 6.19.  I've also reported this on the WCG troubleshooting forum, but so far there's been no response.

Comment 4 Joe Zeff 2011-09-05 17:08:37 UTC
Correction: there was also an email this morning from the WCG forum pointing me to this thread: https://secure.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,31690

This looks like a known issue with the project.  If I can verify that, we may be able to close this bug.

Comment 5 Miroslav Grepl 2011-09-06 07:01:47 UTC
I will add a fix from the SELinux point of view.

Comment 8 Joe Zeff 2011-10-22 19:00:47 UTC
I'm installing the update now, and will then go to the WCG and reactivate that project.  Alas, there's no way of knowing when I'll be assigned a work unit from it unless there's trouble.  Will report back if and when I know anything.
