Description Aleksey Nogin 2004-03-23 15:10:33 EST
Currently, usernetctl does not make any attempt to cooperate with
SELinux and runs all scripts in the originating context of the caller.
As a result, SELinux would not let ordinary users (or staff_r users
for that matter) to control the USERCTL=yes devices.

Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 2004-03-24 18:33:51 EST
Update: when running in enforcing mode with policy-1.9-11, the staff_r
can control the USERCTL=yes devices. 

Hopefully we just need to:
- Check that the user_r works too (assuming it is desirable).
- Add dontaudit for messages that get generated.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-30 17:11:57 EDT
Closing bugs on older releases. Apologies for any lack of response.

Does this persist on FC3/FC4 with strict policy?
Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 2005-10-02 03:33:49 EDT
I have no idea. I am currently using FC3 with the targeted policy.
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2005-10-03 09:42:27 EDT
I will cloase this bug since, NetworkManager should handle this functionality
now and most users are using targeted policy anyways.
