Description Joachim Frieben 2017-08-12 23:15:43 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing journalctl from 'map' accesses on the file /var/log/journal/e0215049b3ad4b45be988a3894bb0931/system@000555eff2a070fa-00d74fe76412519e.journal~.

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

If you believe that journalctl should be allowed map access on the system@000555eff2a070fa-00d74fe76412519e.journal~ 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 'journalctl' --raw | audit2allow -M my-journalctl
# semodule -X 300 -i my-journalctl.pp

Comment 1 Adam Williamson 2017-08-14 23:42:16 UTC
Note we may get quite a lot of dupes of this, as everyone's journal files will be named differently. I see the same denial for my journal file. It seems to prevent the journald service from starting correctly, which is obviously a big problem (and a Beta blocker, per 'Alpha' criterion "A system logging infrastructure must be available, enabled by default, and working.")

Comment 2 Jan Kurik 2017-08-15 08:52:39 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2017-08-21 17:15:37 UTC
I believe 3.13.1-272 resolved this: I have that version installed, and my system is booted in enforcing mode, and the journal works. So, closing this as fixed.
