Description Tom London 2006-01-25 10:22:13 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
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:
starting ekiga with SELinux targeted/enforcing produces:

ekiga: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: Permission denied

Messages in /var/log/audit/audit.log:

type=AVC msg=audit(1138202408.728:317): avc:  denied  { execstack } for  pid=3764 comm="ekiga" scontext=user_u:system_r:unconfined_t:s0 tcontext=user_u:system_r:unconfined_t:s0 tclass=process

Enabling execstack (via 'setsebool execstack=1') works around this, but logs many 'execmem' avc messages.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start ekiga with SELINUX targeted/enforcing

Comment 1 Tom London 2006-01-25 11:22:52 EST
Gack....  Appears to be already files against SDL:

Sorry for the dup.
Comment 2 Daniel Veillard 2006-01-25 11:26:33 EST
not really a dup, there is two issues which I think are separate:
  1/ the SELinux policy need to be updated for ekiga
  2/ the ekiga GConf registration problem

This bug covers 1/ and 170187 covers both 1/ and 2/
So let's keep both open,

Comment 3 Daniel Veillard 2006-03-15 07:28:28 EST
I think it's all fixed now in the current release, thanks
