Description Cole Robinson 2013-07-02 12:23:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Ran: virt-sandbox -v -c qemu:///session /bin/date

Also got a similar error trying to read mounts.cfg
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 from 'getattr' accesses on the file /home/crobinso/.cache/libvirt-sandbox/sandbox/config/mounts.cfg.

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

If you believe that qemu-system-x86_64 should be allowed getattr access on the mounts.cfg 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 pool /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2013-07-03 08:16:22 EDT
I think we need libvirt-sandbox to launch qemu guests with some label other then svirt_t.  svirt_t really will only work well with full qemu guest os on an image, not on a pss through file system.  That being said we should probaly label ~/.cache/libvirt-sandbox with something like virt_home_t.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2013-07-03 08:21:45 EDT
1c18f0e8996586f98eefef5b6314bd16a1c116a1 adds labeling for ~/.cache/libvirt-sandbox as virt_home_t.  Which would solve this avc.

sesearch -A -s svirt_t -t virt_home_t -c file
Found 1 semantic av rules:
   allow virt_domain virt_home_t : file { ioctl getattr lock append open } ;
