I just installed FC4 on a laptop . Fresh install not upgrade. I was
trying to start my GPRS connection over bluetooth as I did in FC3. The
bluetooth service does not seem like working. Looking in the logs (
messages) I found:
Jul 9 23:56:02 fujitsu1020 hcid: Bluetooth HCI daemon
Jul 9 23:56:02 fujitsu1020 hcid: Can not open
Jul 9 23:56:02 fujitsu1020 hcid: Config load failed
Jul 9 23:56:02 fujitsu1020 hcid: Can't open PIN file
/etc/bluetooth/pin: Permission denied (13)
Jul 9 23:56:02 fujitsu1020 sdpd: Bluetooth SDP daemon
All this files exist, have 644 permissions and corect in format since I start hcid and run "rfcomm bind all" by hand the bluetooth connection start working.
The problem is selinux since I modify to "permissive" all is working as expected. In "enforcing" is not working anymore. I think that selinux is preventing access to configuration files. I have all updates to the day.
