SELinux is preventing ethtool "read" access on

Podrobný popis:

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

Povolení přístupu:

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
