SELinux doesn't allow openvpn to chroot
Last modified: 2008-01-30 14:05:23 EST
Description of problem:
OpenVPN has a configuration option to allow the server to run in a chroot
jail. SELinux prevents this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up OpenVPN with the 'chroot' option in its config file.
2. Attempt to start OpenVPN with 'service openvpn start'.
3. The command appears to succeed, but OpenVPN isn't running.

You can allow this for now by executing
# audit2allow -M mypol -i /var/log/audit/audit.log
# semodule -i mypol.pp
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.0.8-68.fc8
