Description Dan Williams 2011-09-13 20:30:19 UTC
NM spawns dnsmasq for a variety of reasons, and one is in a local caching nameserver configuration.  For that purpose, NM has to write out a custom configuration file, and NM writes that file to /var/run.  dnsmasq can't read it when SELinux is enforcing however.

allow dnsmasq_t NetworkManager_var_run_t:file { read getattr };

is the denial line.

Comment 1 Dan Williams 2011-09-13 20:30:42 UTC
This issue should apply to F15, F16, and rawhide.

Comment 2 Miroslav Grepl 2011-09-15 14:09:42 UTC
Done.
