Description Thaddeus Nielsen 2005-06-27 07:36:09 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Just installed selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.13.  Then tried to open OpenOffice 1.9.104.  Got error that no valid window manager was found.  As soon as I turned off enforcement of targeted policy, then I got into OpenOffice without incident.  This will likely surface when trying to open other software too.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.13
2. Run soffice (best from terminal window in order to see error)

Actual Results:  OpenOffice failed to open, gave error that no valid window manager was found

Expected Results:  OpenOffice opens easily when targeted policy enforcement is turned off.

This sounds like a labeling problem.  Are you seeing AVC messages in your log files?

Well you may be onto something.  This is from my /var/log/messages after
installing the updated selinux-policy-targeted (what does this tell you?):

Just installed selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.15 and then turned on targeted
policy enforcement.  Now openoffice opens up like a charm.  Thank you for your
work.  As far as I'm concerned, this "bug" is "fixed."
