Description Scott Tsai 2013-04-14 10:58:21 UTC
Description of problem:
1. Login to gnome desktop session
2. rm -rf $HOME/.cache
3. Open a directory of videos with the nautilus file manager
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/totem-video-thumbnailer from 'create' accesses on the directory .cache.

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

If you believe that totem-video-thumbnailer should be allowed create access on the .cache directory 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 totem-video-thu /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2013-04-15 16:28:56 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.12.1-31.fc19.noarch

We need to allow thumb_t to create ~/.cache if it does not exist.
