Description of problem:
When I suspend and resume selinux is blocking NetworkManager from making an
I installed fc5 with selinux disabled and there was no problem. I have since
tried the permissive setting (which I am currently using) and have come across
this problem. Rebooting and NM works fine again. Suspend/Resume and NM cannot
associate with the wifi, although it seems to get a list of available nets.
Pluging a net cable allows wired network access.
I tried disabling selinux service protection for NM and restarting the NM
service, but this still did not allow it to start.
I then tried switching to the enforced mode and NM started working again.
I have been able to suspend and resume in enforced mode with NM working ok
My wifi uses wep128

Any idea what process is running as mono_t?
Chris do you have any ideas?
mono_t is probably from beagled. POssible from banshee, but I don't think that
was running then.
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.2.38-1.FC5.
