Description Vadim 2013-07-08 07:42:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Have installed ./hplip-3.13.6.bin
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python2.7 from 'create' accesses on the file strings.pyc.

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

If you want to allow python2.7 to have create access on the strings.pyc file
Then you need to change the label on strings.pyc
# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'strings.pyc'
where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: 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 'strings.pyc'

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

If you believe that python2.7 should be allowed create access on the strings.pyc 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 python /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2013-07-08 14:48:58 EDT
This looks like you removed the python compiled code.

Run python strings.py by hand should eliminate this AVC.
