Description Bill Nottingham 2007-06-15 09:37:14 EDT
Description of problem:

SELinux is preventing /sbin/sysctl (udev_t) "write" to (sysctl_net_t).

I'm assuming udev_t is missing the proper transition. I suppose this is the same
thing as the ifup/ifdown issue?

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

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-06-15 09:51:33 EDT
I can add this but it still seems like other parts of the OS should be doing
this, not udev.  Currently we don't have scripts labeled to handle a transition
on ifup/ifdown, just on dhclient or networkmanager.  So I end up having to give
udev this allow rule.

Fixed in selinux-policy-2.6.4-16
