    Default AirVPN client Eddie

    This morning I wanted to open the AirVPN client Eddie and suddenly got this message,
    "Access to the path /etc/issue is denied"
    It won't start now.
    When i delete /etc/issue it works, but after restart same problem.
    I had a Tumbleweed update yesterday, but I have no idea what caused it.
    Hope that taking an idea.

    Thanks, Gerrit Jan

    Is this your post?
    https://airvpn.org/topic/27470-eddie...on-tumbleweed/

    If so please do an:
    Code:
    ls -l /etc/issue
    Seems strange it would be a link.

    On Leap 42.3:
    Code:
    d3vnull@kvm:~> ls -l /etc/issue
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 50 Jul 19  2017 /etc/issue
    d3vnull@kvm:~>
    I don’t have anything to hide, but I don’t have anything I want to show you either.

    Yes it's my post

    Code:
    linux-n1x5:~ # ls -l /etc/issue
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 May 25 13:14 /etc/issue -> ../run/issue
    This is what happens.....and it did not do it.

    I assume the permissions on /run/issue does not let your user account read it. However, I will have to let someone running TW to respond as to whether /etc/issue is suppose to be a link to /run/issue, and what is recreating that link after you remove it.

    Hm, not the ultimate answer. But I remember that that was subject to some discussion in a thread.

    I found it. Stupid enough I wrote it myself: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...I-login-prompt

    And then do not forget to go to the problem link mentioned there.

    This may have some relation to the problem here.

    Since I had more problems with app's under tumbleweed, I did a clean installation of Leap 15.
    Everything works again as it should.
    Tumbleweed gave me too many problems lately.
    Thank you all for contributing.
