SElinux denial warning

  • i opened vivaldi-stable and recieved a SElinux warning on desktop. referenced my extensions?:ublock origin and privacy badger and https everywhere. i am unclear if error had an effect on any process. SELinux is preventing vivaldi-stable from create access on the file 63. ***** Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests ************************** If you believe that vivaldi-stable should be allowed create access on the 63 file by default. Then you should report this as a bug. You can generate a local policy module to allow this access. Do allow this access for now by executing: # ausearch -c 'vivaldi-stable' --raw | audit2allow -M my-vivaldistable # semodule -X 300 -i my-vivaldistable.pp Additional Information: Source Context unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1 023 Target Context unconfined_u:object_r:unconfined_t:s0 Target Objects 63 [ file ] Source vivaldi-stable Source Path vivaldi-stable Port <unknown>Host localhost.localdomain Source RPM Packages Target RPM Packages Policy RPM selinux-policy-3.13.1-191.14.fc24.noarch Selinux Enabled True Policy Type targeted Enforcing Mode Enforcing Host Name localhost.localdomain Platform Linux localhost.localdomain 4.7.2-201.fc24.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Aug 26 15:58:40 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 Alert Count 4 First Seen 2016-09-05 12:54:09 EDT Last Seen 2016-09-06 21:52:07 EDT Local ID 3f525a05-a1f5-4064-821f-d08d267d46ef Raw Audit Messages type=AVC msg=audit(1473213127.504:286): avc: denied { create } for pid=16592 comm="vivaldi-stable" name="63" scontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=unconfined_u:object_r:unconfined_t:s0 tclass=file permissive=0 Hash: vivaldi-stable,unconfined_t,unconfined_t,file,create</unknown>

  • warning repeated every time after three restarts of the program. problem does not occur in snapshot.
    desktop extensions: freon, system monitor, random walls, netspeed. all from github through gnome-tweak-tool

  • occurs in 1.4 version vivaldi-stable

  • Same problem here, also on Fedora 24. My only extensions are Mailvelope, Privacy Badger, and Fedora User Agent.

    Running vivaldi –version yields Vivaldi 1.4.589.15.

  • all right, i think i have something to fix the issue. vivaldi-snapshot gave me the selinux today. after i installed the following update, restarted browser i no longer had selinux warning on opening vivaldi:

  • That looks like a lot of files for additional desktop environments. Was it one of the KDE or Plasma installs that did it? How did you decide that these were the packages that might help?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Also, my sys already has dbus-glib, libyaml, and python3-decorator, so it seems unlikely that they solved the problem.

  • gnome desktop, using kde icons through tweak tool. the only application i recognize from kde is skrooge.

  • no idea how that update might be related, but that update and a minute of runtime were only system changes between me receiving warning on browserstartup, and it working properly.
