Description Andrew Thurman 2022-03-29 22:56:07 UTC
Description of problem:
Happens when waking up from suspend along with SELinux is preventing gst-plugin-scan from write access on the file trace_marker_raw.

Also experiencing freezing when returning from suspend, still unsure if related as difficult to reproduce.
SELinux is preventing fprintd from 'write' accesses on the file persist.

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

If you believe that fprintd should be allowed write access on the persist 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:
# ausearch -c 'fprintd' --raw | audit2allow -M my-fprintd
# semodule -X 300 -i my-fprintd.pp
