We need more information.  Why do you think this is an SELinux problem?

Did you get a selinux error?  If yes please post the selinux error.

Or attach /var/log/audit/audit.log

Comment 2 Bob Horrobin 2008-03-28 09:55:51 UTC
My apologies.  The bug report saved before I could complete it.

I get the following selinux error when the network service is started.

SELinux is preventing iwconfig (ifconfig_t) "search" to ./keys (debugfs_t). 

The selinux trouble shooter says 

Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore
the default system file context for ./keys, restorecon -v './keys' 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. 

This is what I have done.

You can allow this for now by executing 

# audit2allow -M mypol -i /var/log/audit/audit.log 
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.0.8-96.fc8
