I'm trying to start httpd on Fedora 18 and I'm getting this error. I'm a RHEL 5 guy and I'm not familiar with systemctl start ups. I'm not sure where to begin to diagnose this. Any thoughts?

Could it be "/var/tmp symlink" problem or maybe something related to selinux? Or maybe that Is your httpd pristine, or with some configuration?

The httpd config was out of the box. /var/tmp was a dir. There were more problems with the install - the permissions inside /dev were wrong. Non-privileged users couldn't write to /dev/null or read /dev/random. I didn't have much time invested so I switched to ubuntu. I'm doing fine.
