Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing pppd (pppd_t) "write" to (pppd_etc_t).Detailed
DescriptionSELinux denied access requested by pppd. It is not expected that this
access is required by pppd 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.Allowing AccessSometimes labeling
problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore the default system
file context for , restorecon -v If this does not work, there is currently no
automatic way to allow this access. Instead, you can generate a local policy
module to allow this access - see FAQ Or you can disable SELinux protection
altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended. Please file a bug
report against this package.Additional InformationSource

restorecon -R -v /etc/

Should fix the labeing/

Not sure how this got mislabeled.
Comment 2 david guy 2007-12-18 08:59:18 EST
Thanks for the response Daniel.  I thought that the restorecon was a terminal
command, but the error message indicated that it wasn't, at least on my
system.(In reply to comment #1)
