Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2007-01-15 15:14:00 EST
Did this actually block something from working?  If you try this in enforcing
mode do you see errors?  This looks like xen is leaking an open descriptor to
the xen_image_t file.  There is no reason ifconfig should ever need to
read/write this disk image.  I believe this should work in enforcing mode.
Comment 3 Adam Huffman 2007-01-16 14:04:25 EST
Yes, there are errors when running in enforcing mode, though things do appear to
be working.
Comment 4 Daniel Berrange 2007-03-27 11:25:56 EDT
QEMU was leaking file handles to the networking scripts which caused SELinux
errors. This was fixed in Xen 3.0.3-7.fc6

* Tue Mar  6 2007 Daniel P. Berrange <berrange@redhat.com> - 3.0.3-7.fc6
- Ensure PVFB daemon terminates if domain doesn't startup (bz 230634)
- Fix ia64 shadow page table mode
- Close QEMU file handles when running network script

Please upgrade & confirm that the errors went away.
Comment 5 David Juran 2007-04-02 04:32:00 EDT
Yes, this indeed seems to be fixed in xen-3.0.3-8.fc6 (-:
