Description of problem:
I'm seeing an avc denial of grub writing to /var/log/pm-suspend.log when
resuming from hibernate.

avc: denied { getattr } for comm="01grub" dev=sda1 egid=0 euid=0 exe="/bin/bash"
exit=0 fsgid=0 fsuid=0 gid=0 items=0 name="vmlinuz-2.6.20-1.3056.fc7"
path="/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-1.3056.fc7" pid=9742
scontext=system_u:system_r:hald_t:s0 sgid=0 subj=system_u:system_r:hald_t:s0
suid=0 tclass=file tcontext=system_u:object_r:default_t:s0 tty=(none) uid=0

avc: denied { read } for comm="grubby" dev=sda1 egid=0 euid=0 exe="/sbin/grubby"
exit=3 fsgid=0 fsuid=0 gid=0 items=0 name="grub.conf" pid=9747
scontext=system_u:system_r:hald_t:s0 sgid=0 subj=system_u:system_r:hald_t:s0
suid=0 tclass=file tcontext=user_u:object_r:file_t:s0 tty=(none) uid=0

avc: denied { write } for comm="grub" dev=sda3 egid=0 euid=0 exe="/sbin/grub"
exit=0 fsgid=0 fsuid=0 gid=0 items=0 name="pm-suspend.log"
path="/var/log/pm-suspend.log" pid=9752

Looks like you have some labeling problems on /boot and grub.conf since they are
labeled default_t and unlabeled (file_t).

I will update selinux policy to allow bootloader to use pm-suspend.log.

Fixed in selinux-policy-2.5.12-3

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2007-08-22 14:14:16 UTC
Should be fixed in the current release
