Please attach the zone file /etc/firewalld/zones/public.xml

Comment 2 Martin 2012-12-12 14:18:02 UTC

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<zone name="public">

Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2012-12-12 14:20:15 UTC
This is only half of a valid file, therefore the error.

Comment 4 Jiri Popelka 2012-12-12 19:09:19 UTC
Closing this per the following IRC discussion

<twoerner>	Martix: this file is not provided by firewalld
<twoerner>	/etc/firewalld/zones is for user created or customized zones
<twoerner>	where have you got this file?
<twoerner>	you can remove it btw
<Martix>	twoerner: I don't know, I'm running updated F18. upgraded from F17
<Martix>	yum whatprovides can't find a match
<twoerner>	Martix: please remove the file
<Martix>	ok
