Description Brian G. Anderson 2008-07-07 18:48:29 EDT
Description of problem:
I have network manager (NM) setup to use my bluetooth phone as a mobile
broadband modem.  When I initiate a connection I get selinux failures about pppd
not be allowed to access "/var/run/pppd2.tdb".

I can sucessfully connect if I disable selinux or a I make a custom policy
(which is what I did).  I'll attach the avc messages I got in the log and that I
used to make my local policy

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a broadband connection needing ppp.
2. Try and connect using nm-applet
Actual results:
Connection fails and setroubleshooter emits failure warnings

Expected results:
Successful connection

I tested following commands to allow this and it works at me:

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

This issue should fix new release of selinux-policy.
Comment 3 Jiri Skala 2008-09-02 07:52:25 EDT
I tested it with selinux-policy-3.3.1-87.fc9.noarch and it works fine.
