Description Mircea Sava 2011-09-08 20:20:44 UTC
SELinux is preventing /bin/bash from 'write' accesses on the file /etc/resolv.conf.

*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests  *************************

If you want to fix the label. 
/etc/resolv.conf default label should be net_conf_t.
Then you can run restorecon.
# /sbin/restorecon -v /etc/resolv.conf

*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that bash should be allowed write access on the resolv.conf file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep dhclient-script /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2011-09-09 07:57:59 UTC
resolv.conf is mislabeled.

# /sbin/restorecon -v /etc/resolv.conf

will fix. 

Could you reopen the bug if this happens again.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2011-09-09 12:19:42 UTC
Somewhere in your init scripts or a script launched out of dbus it is creating a resolv.conf with the wrong label.  Are you using a tool like ppp?
