Description Björn 'besser82' Esser 2014-07-14 08:33:21 UTC
Description of problem:

  I am the maintainer of pipelight.  The browser-plugins loaded / managed by
  pipelight don't work properly, because of a missing selinux-module.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

  all relased selinux-policy

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  install pipelight: sudo yum install pipelight
2.  pipelight-plugin --enable flash  &&  remove abobe's flash-plugin
3.  restart browser
4.  open a webpage using flash, e.g. http://speedtest.net/

Actual results:

  Pipelight's plugin get's detected, but the browser stalls because of
  avc-denials.  Lot's of avc-denials are reported.

Expected results:

  Pipelight's plugin should work like any other browser-plugin and
  don't produce avc-denials or lock-up the browser.

Additional info:

  I prepared a selinux-module with the needed rules to run everything without
  any avc-alerts/denials.  You can find it here:

  Please backport that module to fc19+, because there are plans for backporting
  pipelight to those releases.

  Many thanks in advance!  ^^

Comment 1 Björn 'besser82' Esser 2014-07-14 12:44:29 UTC
I decided to package this selinux-module as a seperated package.  Having these rules available and enabled by default makes no real sense.
