Description Robert Scheck 2005-06-14 07:49:40 UTC
Description of problem:
/var/log/cron tells after enabling SELinux at executing an at job:
Jun 11 00:00:00 tux atd[8884]: fgetfilecon FAILED a001cd011c6f28: No data 

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, see below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Disable SELinux and reboot the system
2. Submit an "at job" in the near future
3. Enable SELinux to targeted and set permissive or enforced
4. Do a "touch /.autolabel"
5. Reboot the system, wait for relabeling
6. Wait for executing of the at job, have a look to the system log
7. Will fail with the error written above.
Actual results:
The same problem also occurs at switching from targeted to strict and the 
other way round.

Expected results:
I'm absolutely no SELinux expert, but it seems for me, that /var/spool/at/* 
isn't labeled correct. I guess this can be solved in the corresponding SELinux

What is the security context of the /var/spool/at?

ls -lZ /var/spool/at

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2005-07-25 13:12:26 UTC
That looks correct are you seeing any AVC messages in the log files?


Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2005-08-25 21:30:19 UTC
Nope, only what I already wrote in my first paragraph of this bug report:

Jun 11 00:00:00 tux atd[8884]: fgetfilecon FAILED a001cd011c6f28: No data 

Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2005-09-22 14:58:28 UTC
This is happening when you convert from one policy to another, correct?  I think
the problem is there is a file context in /var/spool/at that the new policy does
not understand.  The file context has this line in it.

/var/spool/at/[^/]*    --      <<none>>

Which tells the apps not to relabel anything in the directory, because we have
no idea what to relabel it to.  Usually in /tmp and other places we advise
deleting these files.
