I have been working with ssh for a long time without problems but suddenly, without any changes to the configuration, I am facing problems. When I try to login I get the following message and the connection is closed:
Unable to get valid context for tanwald
I ran SELinux in permissive mode and found the following logs:
I looked for a little and everyone's problem similar to this it seems they are tunnelling for a vnc server of some sort. I am just running ssh and it fails not only from the machine, but also remotely. The username "lee" is in group "sshusers"I have two machines setup the same, as to my knowledge. In one server I can access ssh and everything works well but when I try to ssh into the other one it gives me this
I try to run Mesa gears example and I get following error: Code: freeglut (./gears): Unable to create direct context rendering for window 'Gears' This may hurt performance. though the application runs successfully, but I guess that in future I will have much problems with productivity.
I run Linux CentOS 5 on WMvare 7. Mesa's version is 6.5 Relevant output of lspci -v gives: Code...

I'm attempting to get MapServer running on my Fedora 13 computer. I was able to install with the package manager, and the executable (mapserv) was originally placed in /usr/sbin. But I need it in /var/www/cgi-bin to work on the webserver. So I copied the file to the right location. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the correct SELinux context. Here's the message from the troubleshooter:
SELinux denied access requested by /var/www/cgi-bin/mapserv. /var/www/cgi-bin/mapserv is mislabeled. /var/www/cgi-bin/mapserv default type is httpd_sys_script_exec_t, but its current type is httpd_sys_script_exec_t. Changing this file back to the default type, may fix your problem.
How's that for circular logic? Does anyone have an idea what the correct SELinux context for a cgi-bin executable might be?
I have special permission from the management to stimulate my colleagues to learn Linux - er, Fedora. So I'm dual booting a few machines for them to toy around with. However, all of the popular things of course have to work easily, otherwise there's no convincing them..Almost everything has been arranged, except for an easy way to bulk-print pictures onto A4. I have probably missed it but google doesn't help, this forum doesn't give me too much that I can find.
I did find gpp (Gnome Photo Print) but that is still too complicated. I need to be able to either get it directly from the nautilus context menu, or set the gui so that this app is automatically used when viewing images in a memory card. And then it has to be easy to print.
I just switched from Ubuntu to Fedora (because of Unity) and everything works just fine. my printer. It is Canon LBP6000. A had problem installing it in Ubuntu as well, but finally I did manage it with this tutorial. Problem is that this tutorial does not work in Fedora, since update-rc.d is not valid in Fedora. I am not really a linux geek, just a long time user of Ubuntu. I can follow any tutorial given, but I havent found one for this printer & Fedora. Canon site says that this printer is tested on Fedora 12 and 13 64bit but I doubt it anyway. I am running Fedora 15 beta 64bit with Gnome 3.

I'm suspicious that the context of /etc/sudoers is wrong. During the last upgrade to Fedora 14, RPM dropped /etc/sudoers.rpmnew, which had a different context than the real sudoers file. But, when I try to get SELinux to relabel the file (using restorecon or fixfiles), it refuses to make a change.
I'm working with Fedora and SELinux and am having a problem. I need to allow apache's http daemon to use arp (for getting some mac addresses). I have changed the type of the arp executable to httpd_sys_context_t but am still having an issue. Here is the messages log: Detailed Description:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/httpd from using potentially mislabeled filesjk-runtime-status. SELinux has denied the httpd access to potentially mislabeled filesjk-runtime-status. This means that SELinux will not allow httpd to use these files. If httpd should be allowed this access to these files you should change the file context to one of the following types, httpd_tmp_t,
I know how to change the owner of a file and the permissions but what does it mean to change the file context?
I try to do a upgrade on my fedora 6 ill 10. But when I try to write yum update or yum upgrade on my server a get this error: yum update Loading "installonlyn" plugin Setting up update process Setting up repositories Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: extras
I'm a Fedora user, and recently I switched from KDE to Gnome. Since then I'm experiencing a nerve-wracking problem when I use the right-click. Almost every time when I right-click the result is the automatic selection of the option in the context menu which is at the same level as the cursor. This happens more than 50% of the cases. Is that normal in Gnome or am I the only one that experiences this kind of problem?
I ran "yum update" and updated my new installation. Afterwards: my main application stopped running. It iis an xwindow app. I am trying to run it from a terminal on the gnome desktop. How can I back out my updates and which packages should I try to remove?
I was setting up a Samba server and I ran into some problems with SELinux related to the context of the home directories. I made a user account, say "UserAccount", with a default home directory "home/UserAccount". Afterwards I realized that I needed to move the home directory of this particular user to another location, say "/home2/UserAccount". So I created the new directory, changed the permissions, and used Gnome's system-config-user to change the user's home directory.
I then set-up the Samba server, activated samba_run_unconfined and samba_enable_home_dirs in SELinux, and made an account for UserAccount. When testing the Samba account for UserAccount SELinux denied read access. I checked the context and the new home directory did not appeared to have been updated. I had to manually run:
restorecon -R -v /home2/UserAccount
to set the context on the new home directory. I'm not very familiar with SELinux, so my question is this: is this normal security policy or is a bug in the system-config-user tool? If it's normal policy can someone explain why? I'm always ready to learn Distro: Fedora 12 (kernel: 22.214.171.124-127.fc12.i686) System: Dual Intel Xeon @ 3.2 GHz, 1 GB RAM
I have a problem with 32Bit Fedora. I have it installed on my desktop pc, and it works, but in my laptop it doesn't. On my laptop, I have 64Bit, but wanted to reinstall and use 32Bit instead. Whenever I try to install 32Bit, the loading bar finishes, then the screen goes black, and enters the terminal, blinking rapidly, spamming mtrr 3 not used. I've tried a few things to fix this, but I haven't had any luck.
I have another similar problem with 32Bit on my desktop. It is working right now, but yesterday I installed a NVidia driver, and the mtrr 3 error occurred, forcing me to reinstall, without the NVidia driver.
EDIT: I tried
Then i ran
X -config /boot/xorg.conf.new
The errors that show up are these:
(EE) NOUVEAU(0): [drm] error creating device, setting NoAccel (EE) NOUVEAU(0): 1432: No valid FB address in PCI config space (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
I have a partition that I mount as /data on all of my distros of my multi-boot machine. I am having a bear of a time figuring the right way to address permissions/groups so that any distro can use it (or any removable drive).I tried (in linuxmint) making a group '/data' and assigning the users on my machine to that group, then changing the permissions/groups of the files and folders in that mount as belonging to the /data group, then booted to fedora 15, made the /data group, added the users to that group, I'm not sure that this way will work (it doesn't seem to) or if it's the best way to proceed. some of the things I don't get are:what is the '1000' user and group?is the user/group info on (in or somehow attached) the mount itself?does this seem like a good way to do this?is there on way to 'apply permissions to enclosed files' recursively through the nautilus context menu?

if an admin decides this is security feel free to move, at the moment I can't decide where so posted here...On my laptop (msi-u100) my bluetooth stack creates rfcomm0 but is not applying the correct context label to it so selinux is bitching.
Why do I have an empty directory in the top of my filesystem labeled "cgroup" that goes by the file context above?And why does it apply to all files "/cgroup(/.*)?" as per a fcontext search?Did something break or is this the result of a new update?
I'm running Fedora 11 x86_64 (GNOME) and I'm having a problem installing ANY themes from http://art.gnome.org. Any time I try to install a theme I get an error that it's "appears to not be a valid theme" When I first click the install button and navigate to my theme packages, I don't see the [dot] theme file, which is a red-flag. I change to "All files" and I tend to see an "index.theme". Is this the correct file?
