Description Adam Williamson 2013-03-20 00:09:33 UTC
Description of problem:
Occurs on boot of a Fedora 19 live image built from current repositories. SEalert claims the label is wrong, but if so, it's nothing I did.
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/cupsd from 'setattr' accesses on the file subscriptions.conf.N.

*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************

If you want to allow cupsd to have setattr access on the subscriptions.conf.N file
Then you need to change the label on subscriptions.conf.N
# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'subscriptions.conf.N'
where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: cupsd_etc_t, cupsd_interface_t, cupsd_lock_t, cupsd_log_t, cupsd_rw_etc_t, cupsd_tmp_t, cupsd_var_lib_t, cupsd_var_run_t, krb5_host_rcache_t, print_spool_t. 
Then execute: 
restorecon -v 'subscriptions.conf.N'

*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that cupsd should be allowed setattr access on the subscriptions.conf.N 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 cupsd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Adam Williamson 2013-03-20 00:09:46 UTC
Final blocker: "In most cases, there must be no SELinux 'AVC: denied' messages or abrt crash notifications on initial boot and subsequent login"
