I have a fed 19 and 20 set up as servers with NFS and openLDAP

If firewalld is stopped.... all works great! Start firewalld and I can login using CLI just fine.... #df -h shows my home dir and /pub from server and I have full access.

If I try to login with any desktop.... gnome, kde, classic then the system authenticates and screen goes black.

meanwhile I switch to CLI and login as root and see that NFS connections to user are there and accessable.

I opened every service in default GUI for firewall-config, no luck

Any suggestions?

Some things to check;

  • When you say you opened everything in the firewall configuration, was this in firewall-config tool or something else?
  • The firewall tool has several 'Zones', you did change the Zone (probably 'public') that you're currently using, didn't you? And in both the 'Runtime' and 'Permanent' configurations?
  • You could also try changing the 'internal' and 'external' zones to see if that makes a difference.
  • As you can log-in through the text console, it's not necessarily true that it's NFS access that's being blocked (actually I think it's unlikely) it could be some access to the video layer that's being blocked (X goes out to the network stack, although I've never ever heard of local X access being firewalled out of existence).
  • If you log-on in text mode and do 'startx', does it present you with a desktop session even if the firewall is active?
