Samba with SELinux

Just bought a new notebook - HP6515d, great machine, with AMD 64bit CPU. Well, it's good to run a 64bit OS with my new machine, and 32bit Windows as VM guest.

Cause my Windows XP is running as VM guest, and I don't like to dedicate a whole partition for the guest OS storage, then Samba is the only option.Just simply config the Samba as following:

[global]
        workgroup 
= xxx
        server 
string = xxx
        log level 
= 1
        max log size 
= 1000
        socket options 
= TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        wins support 
= Yes

[homes]
        comment 
= Home directories
        browseable 
= Yes
        valid users 
= %S
        writable 
= yes

[share]
        comment 
= Public shares
        path 
= /tmp
        force user 
= nobody
        force group 
= users
        read only 
= No
        create mask 
= 0777
        directory mask 
= 0777
        guest ok 
= Yes

After startup the Samba daemon, my Windows XP can access the storage provided by my host machine. But stange tings happened. I can't log into my own home directory!

I've checked through all the privileges related settings, such as user group, rights, and everything seems fine.

After a deeper dig into the problem, found that the problem is caused by the SELinux.

OK, a little googleing on this issue, I found this:

setsebool -P smbd_disable_trans 1

This will disable the SELinux support for samba, and after apply this hack, everything works fine now. This may not be the best solution. One of the thread points out the best practice, but it's involved a lot more work to do.

Fine, I'm quite happy with the config right now. I might try the best solution while I have the time. Let's look forward about this:)
