Description Steven Op de beeck 2007-04-12 11:03:49 UTC
Description of problem:

After succeeding in enabling the firewall through system-config-securitylevel,
the same tool won't allow me to disable it again. Nor pressing 'apply' or 'ok'
will have disabled the firewall. Closing and reopening the config-tool shows the
firewall is still enabled. It is also effectively enabled, as iptables -L shows.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open system-config-securitylevel
2. disable Firewall (enable first if not enabled, and reopen dialog)
3. press apply or ok
4. reepon system-config-securitylevel
Actual results:
firewall still shows being enabled.
and effectively is.

Expected results:
firewall should be disabled.

Additional info:
selinux configuration does seem to be effective from the
system-config-securitylevel tool.

Although it's far from obvious, all Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against
"devel", not "test#". Moving this, so it doesn't get lost.

This has been a bulk message. We return you now to your regularly scheduled
program, already in progress.

Im seeing this bug too on a freshly installed and updated F7 machine, had to resort to the following to 
disable the firewall.

iptables -D INPUT -j RH-Firewall-1-INPUT

Fixed in rawhide in package system-config-securitylevel-1.7.0-5.fc8.
