Both problems were solved when SELinux was disabled. Now I'm counting 5 
weird problems solved by disabling SELinux. SELinux should never have 
been enabled by default during installation, let alone Anaconda not 
allowing users to disable it during install.
I can only imagine the number of problems novice users face because of 
SELinux without being able to solve them, either for not being aware of 
SELinux existence and "functionality" or for not knowing how to disable 
this damn thing.
Every time I install a new version of Fedora I give SELinux a try and 
then always greatly regret I did it later.
