Description Cole Robinson 2013-07-02 12:36:06 EDT
Description of problem:
As regular user: virt-sandbox -c lxc:/// /bin/sh
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/libvirt-sandbox-init-common from 'read' accesses on the file sandbox.cfg.

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

If you believe that libvirt-sandbox-init-common should be allowed read access on the sandbox.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 libvirt-sandbox /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2013-07-03 08:37:21 EDT
This is similar to the previous issue in that we have setup labeling for lxc sandboxes to be allowed to use content out of the users home dirs.  Mainly for use with virt-sandbox-service.  We will be labeling ~/.cache/libvirt-sandbox as virt_home_t, not sure we want to allow svirt_lxc_net_t access to this content though.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 13:36:51 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

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.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 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  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

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.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 10:47:05 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
