Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:21 EST

User with an NFS home directory cannot log in. The /var/log/messages entry is:
Nov 8 13:29:08 bashful setroubleshoot: #012 SELinux prevented /bin/login
from reading files stored on a NFS filesytem.#012 For complete SELinux
messages. run sealert -l 37fb36c4-f245-4680-a0f3-714404c6c12c
Nov 8 13:43:48 bashful setroubleshoot: #012 SELinux prevented
/usr/sbin/gdm-binary from reading files stored on a NFS filesytem.#012 For
complete SELinux messages. run sealert -l 971f3e4f-8a21-4593-8316-85a54de75e16

Fails every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1.User home directory on NFS filesystem mounted by autofs
2.User attempts to log in
3.GDM says that the user home directory is not accessable, login fails
Is the boolean use_nfs_home_dirs turned on?
setsebool -P use_nfs_home_dirs=1
No, it wasn't. It is now and user login works fine.
This is the first Fedora that it has been off by default?
Well actually gdm/xsession was always unconfined in the past, I have turned on
the boolean by default in
