Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-06-04 11:40:19 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.6.4-13.fc7

restorecon -R -v /var/run should fix this for now.

This is a bug for me also.

Using selinux-policy-2.6.4-29.fc7

restorecon -R -v /var/run works as a workaround until I reboot

Is this file created by wpa_supplicant?

restorecon /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant
