~# semanage login -a -s user_u user
libsemanage.dbase_llist_query: could not query record value
/usr/sbin/semanage: Error

No denials in AVC log


Reproducible: Always

Seems to be related to Python-3 support; using Python 2.7 it functions properly.
Comment 2 Sven Vermeulen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-10-11 19:24:47 UTC
Another day of trying to figure this out.

It seems like the error comes when semanage -> -> -> _semanage.semanage_user_query

The _semanage stuff comes from the SWIG-generated Printing out the arguments shows that the input initially (to semanage_user_key_create) is correct (like "user_u") and the key returned is always the same value (so it is not a regression from before where a double-free is invoked).

I'm most likely going to insert some debugging statements in the semanage_user_key_create, semanage_user_exists & semanage_user_query functions in libsemanage to see where things might be going wrong. But the whole use of a key/record approach inside libsemanage/libsepol doesn't make it easy to debug...

Not fixed in the sense that it now works, but I marked policycoreutils to only support Python 2.7 (until upstream supports it).

recent selinux userspace utilities are now stabilized
