Description Bill Nottingham 2007-06-11 16:54:54 EDT
Description of problem:

SELinux is preventing ifdown-eth (udev_t) "signal" to (dhcpc_t).

Detailed Description
SELinux denied access requested by ifdown-eth. It is not expected that this
access is required by ifdown-eth and this access may signal an intrusion
attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the
application is causing it to require additional access.

Either:
a) it needs to allow this as-is
b) udev needs to transition to the proper domain when calling ifdown

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-06-12 11:17:20 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.6.4-15

Why does udev do this and not hal?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2007-06-12 11:59:16 EDT
It's just the way it's always been done, I suppose. The 'ifup' bits seem to work
from udev.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-08-22 10:10:29 EDT
Closing as fixes are in the current release
