Exclamation Wifi breaks again - upgraded selinux-policy package gets arrested

Hi,

Just to let you know the latest selinux-policy package (selinux-policy-3.13.1-225.10.fc25.noarch) got my wifi down today (Belkin N 300 usb key using the rtl8192cu/1.10 driver).

After some trial and error I downgraded selinux-policy-3.13.1-225.10.fc25.noarch with option --allowerasing, in the end it downgraded 5 packages

Code:
#downgrade selinux-policy --allowerasing
and it downgraded the following packages

Code:
    Downgrade  firewalld-0.4.3.3-1.fc25.noarch                   @fedora
    Downgraded           0.4.4.3-2.fc25.noarch                   @updates
    Downgrade  firewalld-filesystem-0.4.3.3-1.fc25.noarch        @fedora
    Downgraded                      0.4.4.3-2.fc25.noarch        @updates
    Downgrade  python3-firewall-0.4.3.3-1.fc25.noarch            @fedora
    Downgraded                  0.4.4.3-2.fc25.noarch            @updates
    Downgrade  selinux-policy-3.13.1-224.fc25.noarch             @fedora
    Downgraded                3.13.1-225.10.fc25.noarch          @updates
    Downgrade  selinux-policy-targeted-3.13.1-224.fc25.noarch    @fedora
    Downgraded                         3.13.1-225.10.fc25.noarch @updates
You have to unplug/plug the key back again for it to blink, equally, upon upgrading selinux-policy you have to reboot for the key to stop working, so you won't know right away that your wifi got broken.

I have question though, since my same wifi got down a few weeks ago because of the last wpa_supplicant upgrade, is there any chance that if I upgrade both wpa_supplicant and selinux-policy then wifi will work? Or do I have to keep adding exclusions to my dnf.conf file each time new updates break my wifi?

Thanks,
Vareg

Re: Wifi breaks again - upgraded selinux-policy package gets arrested

My 0.02$:

Code:
[root@nova ~]# cat /etc/selinux/config

# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
#     enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
#     permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
#     disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
SELINUX=disabled
# SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these three values:
#     targeted - Targeted processes are protected,
#     minimum - Modification of targeted policy. Only selected processes are protected. 
#     mls - Multi Level Security protection.
SELINUXTYPE=disabled
then reboot.

I never use that stuff, and never will, EVER.
IMHO it's actually a sabotage of Linux.

Well I don't really want to have selinux disabled all year long though

Why not ?

the thing was created to run multi-user army systems, so that the users could use the systems' resources without hampering each other and with data being secure from prying eyes.


Are you running a mult-user army system ?

Then forget it, it'll do you more harm than good.

no I'm not, still...I'm still not convinced about that I should disable SEL. Let me throw the ball back anyway, why is it that SEL is enabled by default on the default workstation edition?

Sabotage. That's why.
All this hysteria about viruses and trojans is way overrated.
I am on Unix/Linux since 1992, administered/installed/configured/rebuilt thousands of servers all over the world, run dozens of computers, laptops, and PCs myself, and haven't gotten hacked once.
Only my Cisco router got hacked ! imagine that, built by the same (NSA) people who built SELinux.

Interesting POV. Been on Linux since 2003, never thought of it that way though, thanks!
