I have noticed, even with the previous v2 version (beta 2), and confirmed now with RC1, a problem with a host running Linux and Selinux : /var/log/messages is empty. My conf is : Centos 5.2 64 bits, selinux=enforcing, Vmware RC1 installed.
When I switch selinux to permissive, /var/log/messages is filled by syslogd, without any problem. When I come back to "enforcing", /var/log/messages is empty.
I thought this problem was independent of Vmware, but :
1) my other Centos server, without Vmware, and with selinux enforced, have no problem,
2) I found this thread : http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=1772 , in which vmware is quite suspected, by manipulating /etc/services file.
Has anybody seen this problem ? Is it a Vmware bug, or a Linux conf problem ?
