Comment 1 Marek Greško 2015-05-26 20:18:45 UTC
I found out the bug caused by incorrect ownership of /var/run/radvd. When I change owner of the directory to root, the pid file is created successfully and radvd is running when started by systemctl. Otherwise the startup is blocked by selinux, because it block root to write to directory owned by radvd.
