Red Hat Fedora 14 and BigFix Client Software

Finally got the client working on my Fedora 14 test box…

basically following the instructions on the bigfix website:

Ran into a problem with the basic instructions though… a fresh install of Fedora 14 apparently has additional restrictions and would not allow the libBEScrypto library to function properly… i got the following error while attempting to launch the BESClient:

[root@fedora1 BESClient]# /etc/init.d/besclient start Starting BESClient: /opt/BESClient/bin/BESClient: error while loading shared libraries: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: Permission denied

As it turns out the solution was simple… and i’m working via the BigFix forum thread ( to explain to me why it worked… but basically to get the client started and working I had to run the following command:

setsebool -P allow_execstack 1

then using the “/etc/init.d/besclient start”, the client started right up…
