Re: fedora 9/10 Guest account?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hmm, doesn't seem to be working:

This is on a fully updated F9 install, selinux in enforcing mode, xguest installed. When trying to login at the Guest user:


SELinux is preventing dbus-daemon (xguest_dbusd_t) "read write" to socket

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by dbus-daemon. It is not expected that this
access is required by dbus-daemon and this access may signal an intrusion
attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the
application is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
( Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report (
against this package.

Hmm, interesting. I'm rebuilding my image with that package installed, and selinux in enforcing mode on a test vm right now, and I'll see how it goes.

I'm looking to get a guest account setup, possibly on a whole host of workstations I run running F9.
These workstations auth against and ldap/kerberos setup we have, fyi.

so far, my idea is to create a local "guest" user, and user pam_mount to create a tmpfs home directory for the guest user on login, so that it will be removed on logout. I want this user to only be able to login though GDM.

Does any one have any experiance doing something like this? is there any though of taking the Guest user system Ubutu recently implemented on?

Any help/ideas would be great.

What about :-)
