Also affects OpenOffice.org1.9m109. Not only that but
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.9 not only has this problem but also throws
errors on lines ass follows:  
invalid context system_u:object_r:crypt_device_t on line number 287
invalid context system_u:object_r:system_dbusd_var_run_t on line number 888
Comment 2 G. Roderick Singleton 2005-06-28 15:46:30 EDT
latest update of selinux breaks OpenOffice.org releases so they do not start at
all. Changing files_context to accomodate teh OOo libraries in their installed
directories does not work.

Comment 3 G. Roderick Singleton 2005-06-28 15:47:30 EDT
Solution to above problem. Disable SELinux.
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2005-07-03 11:21:29 EDT
Fixed in selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.16
Comment 5 Walter Justen 2005-08-19 05:44:08 EDT
