Description Ryan Skadberg 2005-06-16 14:44:40 UTC
Getting this with NetworkManager-0.4-30.cvs20050615:

Jun 16 10:35:45 codewarrior NetworkManager: <WARNING>     (): Could not activate
the DHCP daemon /sbin/dhcdbd.  error: 'Failed to execute child process
"/sbin/dhcdbd" (Permission denied)'.
Jun 16 10:35:45 codewarrior kernel: audit(1118932545.701:1198): avc:  denied  {
execute } for  pid=6880 comm="NetworkManager" name=dhcdbd dev=dm-0 ino=2806785
scontext=system_u:system_r:NetworkManager_t tcontext=system_u:object_r:sbin_t

I tried doing an autorelabel and that didn't help.

This seems to have gone away with the next update, but now I get this when it
tries to DHCP:

Jun 17 12:00:30 codewarrior dbus: avc:  denied  { send_msg } for
msgtype=method_call interface=com.redhat.dhcp member=up dest=com.redhat.dhcp
spid=3208 tpid=3260 scontext=root:system_r:NetworkManager_t
tcontext=root:system_r:NetworkManager_t tclass=dbus

dwalsh: this looks correct and should be allowed... 

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2005-06-18 02:00:53 UTC
Fixed in  policy 1.23.18-12

Closing, works with latest Rawhide.  Thanks!
