:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/evince-thumbnailer from 'read' accesses on the file Fedora-16-Release_Notes-en-US.pdf.
:*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************
:If you want to allow evince-thumbnailer to have read access on the Fedora-16-Release_Notes-en-US.pdf file
:Then you need to change the label on Fedora-16-Release_Notes-en-US.pdf
:# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'Fedora-16-Release_Notes-en-US.pdf'
:where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: fonts_cache_t, thumb_exec_t, shell_exec_t, sysctl_crypto_t, user_cron_spool_t, cert_t, data_home_t, etc_t, user_home_type, sssd_public_t, abrt_t, lib_t, ld_so_t, net_conf_t, cpu_online_t, afs_cache_t, abrt_helper_exec_t, krb5_conf_t, user_tmp_type, passwd_file_t, gstreamer_home_t, textrel_shlib_t, xdm_home_t, rpm_script_tmp_t, thumb_tmp_t, ld_so_cache_t, bin_t, samba_var_t, locale_t, dosfs_t, etc_t, fonts_t, thumb_t, proc_t, usr_t, sysfs_t, net_conf_t, abrt_var_run_t, audio_home_t. 
:Then execute: 
:restorecon -v 'Fedora-16-Release_Notes-en-US.pdf'
:*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that evince-thumbnailer should be allowed read access on the Fedora-16-Release_Notes-en-US.pdf 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:

What is /mnt/tonlist? I mean what kind of data is mounted there?

Comment 8 Miroslav Grepl 2012-03-27 18:04:22 UTC
I think we could add support for nfs/cifs and public content to handle these configurations.

For now try to execute

$ chcon -R -t user_home_t /mnt/tonlist/*

Comment 9 Daniel Walsh 2012-03-27 19:00:24 UTC
default_t is the label of non standard directories created under /.  I believe the file was created in one of these directories and then moved under /mnt.

The problem here is whether we allow thumb_t to read any non security file on the system.

Comment 10 Miroslav Grepl 2012-03-28 07:36:38 UTC
I made thumb as userdom_home_reader to see if this is enough. Probably not but we could try it for now.

Comment 11 Flóki Pálsson 2012-03-28 20:16:21 UTC
Comment #8
>$ chcon -R -t user_home_t /mnt/tonlist/*
That works.
I can not remember why "system_u:object_r:default_t:s0" is on the data disk /mnt/tonlist. But i changeed it to that at some point in time.
