Description Pavel Ondračka 2013-07-13 19:52:27 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/boinc_client from 'read' accesses on the file unix.

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

If you believe that boinc_client should be allowed read access on the unix 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:
# grep boinc_client /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2013-07-16 11:30:26 UTC
Does everything work correctly?

Comment 2 Pavel Ondračka 2013-07-16 17:30:28 UTC
Probably yes. At the moment boinc seems to be crunching fine and I haven't noticed any failed boinc tasks, just the selinux warning.
