The previous version had the same problem, and a tested workaround was
to disable selinux.

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2004-08-11 20:46:09 UTC
In order to get homedirectory access working with Targeted policy you
need to mark the files with httpd_user_content_t

chcon -t httpd_user_content_t /home/user/XYZ

Comment 3 Ben Levenson 2004-10-05 23:22:44 UTC
You need to change the context of the file after you relocate it
from your home directory to /var/www/html.
"restorecon /var/www/html/vm/vm.exe" should do the trick.

Closing as NOTABUG.
