AVC denials generated by xguest login attempt
Description of problem:
When I click "guest" in GDM to log into the system as xguest, I get kicked back to the login screen. I am trying to log into XFCE as xguest. XFCE is the only DE I use.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set preferred desktop to XFCE (or have XFCE as the only installed DE)
2. click "guest" in GDM to log in as xguest
I get kicked back to the login screen
A usable XFCE desktop, heavily sandboxed
Looks like your /var/lib directory is mislabled
restorecon -R -v /var/lib
Should clean it up.
Performed "restorecon -R -vv /var/lib" as instructed. Issue was not cleaned up.
There was something mentioned in #fedora-selinux the other day that might be the cause.
grift directed me to run:
# semanage fcontext -l | grep xguest
This was the output:
/var/lib/xguest/home = /home
Don't know if that's relevant or not.
So you are still not able to log in?
That is correct. I still cannot log in as xguest.
What AVC's are you seeing after fixing the labels in /var/lib

AVC denials after running restorecon
The AVC denials generated by attempting to log into XFCE as xguest. This is after running the restorecon command as directed (which generated no output) and forcing the audit logs to rotate.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
