View Full Version : Fedora 10 : two questions!:

5th May 2009, 08:06 PM

I installed fedora 10, then installed fail2ban, got the message immediately:
"AVC denial" : pup up from a gold star shape icon
SELinux is preventing iptables (iptables_t) "read write" unconfined_t.
What does it mean? it should come from fail2ban.

then the next question is windows partitions do not mount.

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 9723 73501664 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 9723 10070 2621440 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3 10070 19241 69334016 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda4 19241 20673 10829824 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda5 10070 12844 20971520 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda6 12844 14431 12001280 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda7 14432 14459 200781 83 Linux
/dev/sda8 14459 19240 36146218+ 8e Linux LVM

but actually I cant visit those windows partitions.
I dont know the reason. this is totally different from suse.
Thanks a lot!

Can you open a terminal and post the output of

cat /etc/mtab

Have you updated your installation of F10 and how did you install fail2ban ?

how to update the fedora 10? this is already the newest version.
I follow the directions on http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.my-whiteboard.com%2Flinux-admin%2Fhow-to-install-fail2ban-to-block-ip-addresses-on-redhat-centos.html&ei=_qEASoC5FpjEMbKGndcH&usg=AFQjCNElYVaK-yQjrbLkfbtZbEsA0Q6NoA that is google for "how to install fail2ban with yum", the first item.

plus, the mtab you see is the version after one restart, and all windows partitions got mounted to /Desktop automatically.
maybe I could change the position they're mounted to?

The non Fedora partitions are mounted to /media/ by default, they are just displayed on the desktop. To not have them not displayed on the desktop.

yum install gconf-editor

then under

and de-select volumes_visible

Take a few minutes and read through the Tips section of the Front Page of the Forums for a good grounding in the basics of Fedora.

Thanks. it's ok to have those partitions on desktop.
