refpolicy questions go to refpolicy@oss.tresys.com (cc'd).

I would recommend updating your SELinux userspace to the latest released version and rebuilding your policy, and also booting permissive and performing a complete filesystem relabel.

Your tmpfs denials suggest that you have a tmpfs mount that is not being properly labeled. For example, if you are using a tmpfs mount on /dev, then it usually needs to have restorecon -R /dev applied during early boot (from rc.sysinit in Fedora) or to be mounted with a rootcontext= option. ls -Z /dev would be interesting, as would cat /proc/mounts. -- Stephen Smalley National Security Agency -- This message was distributed to subscribers of the selinux mailing list.
