Default VMware Server blocked but no AVCs

Hello all,

I use VMware Server on my F9 box for running other OSs in a virtualised
environment.

I used to use the VMware-server-1.0.* range, but recently upgraded to
VMware-server-2.0.0. This version has a strange web interface rather
than operating as an individual application as before. The interface
loads and presents a log-on screen.

It fails here with any attempt to log in to the server met with the
error:
"The server is not responding. Please check that the server is running
and accepting connections."

The strange thing is:
There are *NO* AVCs
It does NOT work in permissive mode
It DOES work when selinux is *disabled*

It also causes the system to hang when shutting down the PC.

Does anyone know of a workaround or fix, or do I need to revert to v.
1.0.7 ?

Thanks in advance

Mark

It's apparently a problem that vmware tries to used PAM multithreaded,
but PAM is not multithread safe. If you have selinux off pam takes one
code path that happens to work, if it's on, it takes another and
explodes. I don't think we have any answer of than downgrade vmware or
turn off selinux until vmware fixes their problem...

The pam_permit workaround works for me but you might not like it given
that it disables all auth.
