Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 244397
sysctl executed as wrong type
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:07:27 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):
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
Closing as fixes are in the current release
