SELinux is preventing /bin/bash "ioctl" access on

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

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

Allowing Access:

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

Comment 1 Viktor Erdelyi 2010-06-13 09:01:15 UTC
Switched to permissive mode while waiting for 3.7.19-26 to fix the bash signal issue. It got beyond the bash signal in permissive mode and gave this one.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2010-06-14 22:52:09 UTC
Looks like we need a dontaudit.
