Deal with relocation of NetworkManager
This is fixed in Today's Rawhide. The wpa stuff is badly broken with SELinux
We need to talk about how this is supposed to work.
I committed a patch last night to NM CVS to move the socket stuff to
/var/run/NetworkManager instead of /tmp. I'll stick that in Rawhide sometime
this week (possibly today). Will that fix the problem?
That will help, but /var/run/wpa_supplicant
directory seems to be created and removed by NetworkManager. Is there a reason
it removes the directory or could we just remove the contents?
/* HACK: should be fixed in wpa_supplicant. Will likely
* require accomodations for selinux.
sock_path = supplicant_get_device_socket_path (self);
Yeah, mainly because wpa_supplicant doesn't seem to remove it's own sockets,
which should likely be fixed there of course. So lets let this one slide for
the moment while I investigate why wpa_supplicant doesn't do the right thing.
Seems to be working.
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.2.14-1
