Description of problem:SELinux is blocking access from /sbin/mii-tool to

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.60

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
SELinux denied access requested by /sbin/mii-tool. It is not expected that this
access is required by /sbin/mii-tool 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.

Reassigning to selinux-policy. Anyway I would strongly suggest to use ethtool
instaed of mii-tool.

Comment 2 Brian Trapp 2007-02-16 13:22:03 UTC
Here are the version of selinux packages I have installed.


I just saw today that there is a selinux update available (-37) I'll update to
that when I get home and let you know if the error message still exists.

Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-02-16 15:01:25 UTC
This looks like a local customization.  Why is mii-tool writing to a log

If you need this you can add customized local policy.

audit2allow -M mymiipolicy < /var/log/audit/audit.log
