Description Petr Schindler 2015-01-15 15:51:19 UTC
Description of problem:
This happens right after start of the system
SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-journald from 'getattr' accesses on the netlink_audit_socket netlink_audit_socket.

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

If you believe that systemd-journald should be allowed getattr access on the netlink_audit_socket netlink_audit_socket 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 systemd-journal /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2015-02-03 23:12:54 UTC
Proposing as a Final blocker: "There must be no SELinux denial notifications or crash notifications on boot of or during installation from a release-blocking live image, or at first login after a default install of a release-blocking desktop." - .

Comment 3 Mike Ruckman 2015-02-07 05:30:59 UTC
I don't see this any more with the recent selinux-policy-3.13.1-110.fc22.noarch build.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2015-02-09 17:37:29 UTC
yeah, I didn't either. Call it closed.
