Description Tom von Schwerdtner 2004-04-14 23:12:35 EDT
Currently, X will not start due to lack of permissions on
/var/log/Xorg.* and /dev/mem.  

Changing occourances of XFree86 to Xorg in
/etc/security/selinux/src/policy/file_contexts/program/xserver.fc and
rebuild/relable fixes things.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-14 23:29:19 EDT
Fixed in latest policy 1.11.2-5
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-04-14 23:56:53 EDT
Haven't looked at changes, but might be a good idea to keep
XFree86 policy as well, in case someone has XFree86 kicking around,
or is using older xorg-x11 packaging for whatever reason.  Just
a suggestion, I'm indifferent though since it's fixed for current
Xorg.  ;o)
Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 2004-04-15 02:57:10 EDT
Probably took me over an hour to figure out what was wrong and why X
would not start :-(
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2004-04-15 07:22:38 EDT
XFree86 is still in the policy.
