Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2006-01-31 10:04:10 EST
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.

Comment 3 Dan Williams 2006-01-31 10:12:23 EST
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?
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2006-01-31 10:18:41 EST
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?
Comment 5 Dan Williams 2006-01-31 10:25:59 EST
	/* HACK: should be fixed in wpa_supplicant.  Will likely
	 * require accomodations for selinux.
	sock_path = supplicant_get_device_socket_path (self);
	unlink (sock_path);
	g_free (sock_path);

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
