Description Mike Ruckman 2015-04-08 18:48:18 UTC
Description of problem:
Fresh installation of i386 Workstation from netinst results in 5 selinux denials on first login.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot workstation netinst
2. Use all defaults, don't create a user
3. Install
4. Go through g-i-s
5. log in with user from step 4
6. See notifications for avc denials

Actual results:
avc denials

Expected results:
no avc denials

Additional info:
Also proposing as a Final Blocker per the following criterion: 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 1 Mike Ruckman 2015-04-08 18:54:42 UTC
The denials are for:
 - usesradd
 - gdm-session-worker
 - polkitd
 - colord
 - cupsd

All for "read" under "Attempted Access."

Comment 2 Lukas Vrabec 2015-04-09 14:43:18 UTC
Do you have these AVCs?
Personally, I think this domains trying to read /etc/localtime. 
Could you confirm this? 

Thank you.

FWIW I didn't see this on an x86_64 Workstation network install today which got selinux-policy -122.

Comment 4 Petr Schindler 2015-04-20 18:49:25 UTC
Discussed at today's blocker review meeting [1].

It was decided to delay the decision -  adamw couldn't reproduce this today and the report is short on detail, let's give roshi a chance to provide more info


Comment 5 Mike Ruckman 2015-04-23 22:49:54 UTC
Here are the selinux logs.

Lukas, looks like you're correct.

I've only seen this on i386 and only when g-i-s is used to create the user. If you create the user in anaconda there are no denials. -122 was installed.

Sorry it took me so long to respond :(
