User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20060103 Fedora/1.5-4 Firefox/1.5
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I *think* this is possibly due a selinux policy issue. Please select the "Allow
the use of shared libraries with Text Relocation" in the compatibility section.
In the security level gui. I had to do a 'setenforce 0' and back to 1 to get
firefox to see flash plugin and any other java plugins.
there was also a mention of "chcon system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t <whatever>
The problem is more the software vendor, not selinux :)" from
again im not so sure :)
I have the same problem with Flash on Firefox, while SELinux is off initially.
So I believe it has not too much to do with SELinux. Please advise.
