http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I keep getting SELinux error messages that state "SELinux is preventing samba (/usr/sbin/smbd) "search" to / (fusefs_t)." and the like, seems that pretty much everything I do generates some kind of error. I currently have SELinux set to permissive but I don't want to continue to run that way. SELinux Troubleshooter won't work right now, it just gets stuck on "Load audit", I can see that at the bottom of the screen. But earlier it was working and I printed one page of output from it, the above error message is part of that. The Solution, it says, is to run the command "chcon -R -t samba_share_t /" when I do that I get page after page of error messages like "chcon: failed to change context of <filename/blah/blah/blah> to system_u:object_r:samba_share_t: Operation not supported" About the SELinux Troubleshooter, when I first had a problem with it this afternoon, (again, it was working fine this morning) it said it couldn't connect to the browser, I believe, it said it would retry after several seconds, after several iteration of that I closed it and restarted the computer. Now when I try it the page opens and it says it is connected but there is a horizontal bar that moves back and forth on a message that states "Load audit". I have left it trying like that for about 30 minutes to no avail. So I have two issues going on, perhaps unrelated. Thanks for any help. (HowTos)
