Description Radek Steiger 2011-09-21 16:55:56 UTC
Created attachment 524245 [details]
audit.log entries from luci start to client connection failure

Description of problem:

When luci is started with selinux enforcing mode on, connecting to luci port with a browser results in Internal Server Error.

It looks like luci is unable to create a directory structure under /var/run/luci/sessions upon initiating a user connection. 

audit.log fills with these messages:

type=AVC msg=audit(1316622511.915:47850): avc:  denied  { create } for  pid=5845 comm="paster" name="container_file" scontext=unconfined_u:system_r:piranha_web_t:s0 tcontext=unconfined_u:object_r:var_run_t:s0 t

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. update to latest 6.2 packages
2. make sure selinux is in Enforcing mode
3. start luci
4. open the desired URL in any browser

Actual results:
Internal Server Error

Expected results:
Luci shows the login page.

Additional info:
See the attached log. First three entries appear when luci is starting, but do not seem to be fatal. The rest is added after a user initiates a connection

/var/run/luci is mislabeled.

restorecon -R -v /var/run/luci

Whatever process/init script that is creating this directory has to fix the label after its creation.
