The warning from SELinux on connecting (2.88 KB, application/octet-stream)

Description Benjamín Valero Espinosa 2010-06-01 04:12:58 EDT
I am unable to connect to my work VPN, with Fedora 13 updated, with nm-applet. The version is 0.7.997-1. With the same configuration, I was able with Fedora 12.

A significant difference in my both systems is that now I have SELinux enabled. After reading [1], I have run as root '/usr/libexec/nm-openvpn-service' and then I can connect. Perhaps is it a problem of permissions? What kind of info can I add?

I have just updated to testing, with some packages related to SELinux and a a new version 0.8 for NetworkManager-openvpn, but it still doesn't work.

I have set SELinux to "Permissive" and it works now. SELinux shows me a warning that I attach. It is similar to bug #564167, but in this case SELinux prevents access to the .CER certificate.

I am moving this to selinux-policy. It this is wrong, tell me please.

I am closing it because this bug was my fault. My home partition came from a system without SELinux. Running "restorecon -r /home" has done the trick.
