Dan, I think this has been fixed already in recent policy, right?
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-10-27 15:40:04 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.3.1-103.fc9
Comment 4 Lebenskuenstler 2008-11-05 00:28:06 EST
Well, no AVC denial anymore.

My pptp-connection still does not work in F9 but looks better now in F10-Preview ;)

pptp and NetworkManager are working in Fedora 10.
