Description Thomas Moschny 2009-10-12 00:37:57 UTC

SELinux is preventing /sbin/dhclient "getcap" access.

Detaillierte Beschreibung:

SELinux denied access requested by dhclient. It is not expected that this access
is required by dhclient 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.

Zugriff erlauben:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

Looks like this should be in this policy.  Could you make sure your policy successfully installed.

yum reinstall selinux-policy-targeted

Make sure nothing breaks on the install.

Ok, after reinstalling the policy and relabeling everything, the alert is not shown anymore.
