Comment 1 Jonathan Steffan 2007-04-11 00:35:12 EDT
selinux-policy-targeted-2.4.6-54.fc6 fixes this issue.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2007-04-11 09:31:57 EDT
I want to point out the problem here was an update to arping which caused the
problem, not the SELinux update.  Not that this helps anyone inconvenienced by
the problem
