X Guest Again
Now that Fedora 8 is approaching completion,  I have cut a new version of xguest.rpm

You must be fully updated to the latest rawhide.

To install you can copy down the rpm then execute

yum install --nogpgcheck xguest-1.0.1-2.fc8.noarch.rpm

This should also bring in the latest sabayon code.

This rpm will create an xguest user account with a disabled password.

You can not log into this account by anything but gdm when SELinux is in enforcing mode.

It uses pam_selinux_permit to perform this magic.

This rpm sets up pam_namespace to mount a temporary file system for /tmp, /var/tmp and $HOME.

It also uses sabayon to change the default login.  Basically it removes any of the privledged panel apps that a normal login session would run

setroubleshoot, network manager, performance manager. logout.

You should have a full login session, but not be able to talk to any network ports, other then using firefox to talk to the web, other apps like curl , and links will fail.  You can not run any setuid applications. 

Try it out and tell me what you think.

Here you go: —- ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant ctrl_interface_group=wheel network={ ssid=”tangent” key_mgmt=WPA-PSK psk=”network key goes here” priority=2 } network={ ssid=”adlnet” bssid=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx key_mgmt=WPA-PSK psk=”network key goes here” } —- Btw, if you have DHCP set up, it could very long to obtain IP address or it could even never get it (request timeout), however network interface should be brought up (you can see ethX up, but with no IP assigned).
