Description Leszek Matok 2007-12-13 07:24:11 EST
I use the most popular Polish Internet service, which is neostrada tp. Instead
of following stupid webpages about "how to set it up under Linux" (which deal
with it the Slackware way, being very intrusive to the system), I've used
Fedora's startup scripts. It works great and I'm using it since FC6 or 5. The
only thing that's bothering me are the "avc: denied" messages :)

I've told you all that, because in my opinion I'm not doing anything non-Fedora
way. I'm just using some non-standard config file, which I'll attach in a moment.

I'm attaching:

- dmesg fragment that gets there after "ifup ppp0",
- my ifcfg-ppp0 if it can help nail the problem.

Once again, everything works (or pretends to be working for over a year), so
it's a cosmetic issue.

There is a boolean for this

setsebool -P pppd_can_insmod 1
