I am developing Android platform (Oreo) with imx6dl and imx6Q

Recently, I just add ublox GNSS driver (v3.5) from ublox on my platform and met a problem related to Selinux.

  • If OS was built with Selinux is enabled(enforced) , ublox driver tried to bind but failed continuously(kicked repeatedly) and the message is as below:

/****************************************************************************/

init: starting service 'ubx-gnss'...
init: property_set("init.svc.ubx-gnss", "running") OK!
init: property_set("ro.boottime.ubx-gnss", "964917483781") failed: property already set

init: property_set("init.svc.ubx-gnss", "restarting") OK!
init: Untracked pid 1526 killed by signal 13

/***************************************************************/

  • the result of getprop is as below:

[init.svc.ubx-gnss]: [restarting]

[ro.boottime.ubx-gnss]: [10671214334]

However, if I built OS with disable Selinux( add androidboot.selinux=permissive in bootarg ) then ublox driver can be attached successfully. and NMEA message can come out 

Logs:

getprop:

There is no related AVC message . My GPS port is i2c-0 .

Further information in later experiment:

I try to build OS image with disable Selinux but I purposely enter the incorrect path for library , then I got the SAME error messages as the OS image with enabled Selinux.

It seemed that I have permission issue to access shared library when Selinux is enabled. 

 Please give me some help if possible. Thank you!

I will suggest to you that disabled your service first, and start it after boot_completed, just as follows, the system will give you enough message about permission, and then you just add the permission what it needs.

service ubx-gnss

      disabled

on property:sys.boot_completed=1
     bootchart stop

     start ubx-gnss

Hello Benson Wu,

I would recommend looking for insight on the Google Developer forums as permissions in newer Android versions are becoming more intricate.

There are a couple of threads in our communities regarding Selinux but not for Oreo, like the one below. So a dedicated Android forums may provide better information.

My apologies for the inconvenience!
