Description of problem:
I'm getting a message (see below)when trying to share a directory with samba that is already shared with nfs

This message is completely misleading as NFS is already working, but samba is not.


SELinux hindert den NFS-Daemon daran, dass entfernte Clients lokale Dateien

Detailed Description:

SELinux hinderte den NFS-Daemon (nfsd) am Lesen im lokalen System. Falls Sie
keine Dateisysteme exportiert haben, könnte dies einen Einbruchsversuch

Allowing Access:

Falls Sie Dateisysteme via NFS exportieren möchten, müssen Sie den
samba_export_all_ro Boolesch aktivieren: "setsebool -P samba_export_all_ro=1".

Fix Command:

setsebool -P samba_export_all_ro=1

This looks like a translation problem.
Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2008-12-02 16:41:58 EST
I tried an "unset LANG" but even after this the "sealert -l" output comes with German messages. Is there any way to see the messages in English to verify that this is really a translation issue?
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-12-03 09:23:40 EST
LANG=C sealert ...

Should do it.
Comment 4 Bernd Bartmann 2008-12-03 09:34:12 EST
Nope, even with LANG=C in front of the sealert command I get the summary text in German.
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2008-12-03 09:44:28 EST
Ok read the source.

Comment 6 Bernd Bartmann 2008-12-03 09:51:34 EST
Thanks. The english text in the source looks good to me. Now, where is the translated text and how to get it fix, i.e. should we assign this to another component or person?
Comment 7 Fabian Affolter 2008-12-03 14:34:38 EST
Thanks for reporting this.  The German translation was wrong.

Fixed with commit
