Description Jeff Moyer 2008-07-17 17:25:01 UTC
Description of problem:
I had a passwd entry that used /var/crash as its home directory, and a login
shell of /bin/bash.  I ended up getting a lot of message like this:

/etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: Multiple same specifications
for /var/lost\+found/.*.

<dwalsh>genhomedircon labels the parent directory home_root_t and the child
<dwalsh> So /var -> home_root_t. crash user_home_dir_t
<dwalsh> Confined domains are not allowed in users homedir.
<dwalsh> useradd -d /var/dwalsh1 dwalsh1
<dwalsh> genhomedircon 
<dwalsh> matchpathcon /var/dwalsh1
<dwalsh> /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: Multiple same
specifications for /var/lost\+found/.*.
<dwalsh> /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: Multiple different
specifications for /var  (system_u:object_r:home_root_t:s0 and
<dwalsh> /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: Multiple same
specifications for /var/\.journal.
<dwalsh> /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts: Multiple same
specifications for /var/lost\+found.
<dwalsh> /var/dwalsh1 system_u:object_r:user_home_dir_t:s0
<dwalsh> The genhomedircon should have complained and not added the entries.
