Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-10-01 11:49:47 EDT
Somehow your resolv.conf got the wrong label on it.  restorecon -R -v
/etc/resolv.conf will fix.

Comment 4 Adam Pribyl 2007-10-02 03:58:04 EDT
Ok, this fix it, but I can reproduce it with described steps again. This means
something - probably system-config-network - handles the resolv.conf in the way
that the correct context is removed. Could be this is not a problem of policy,
but of system-config-network.
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2007-10-02 09:34:42 EDT
Yes I am reassinging.  system-config-network should be setting the file context
correctly when it creates the files.  It can do this using the selinux python
bindings or by executing restorecon.

This problem still occures in F8T3.
