Description Hal Canary 2006-05-22 23:29:24 EDT
*** Description of problem: ***

Since I installed FC5, the video on Realplayer doesn't work.  I changed the
SELinux policy from "enforcing" to "disabled" and the video began working.

Other media players such as mplayer and xine work just fine.

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

$ uname -srpi
Linux 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5 athlon i386

$ rpm -q RealPlayer

$ rpm -q  selinux-policy

*** How reproducible: ***


*** Steps to Reproduce: ***
1.  /usr/bin/system-config-securitylevel -> set policy to "enforcing"
2.  Download rpm of realplayer from "http://www.real.com/linux/".
3.  Install rpm
4.  Watch a video:

What avc messages are you seeing in /var/log/messages?   Have you tried to
upgrade to the latest released selinux policy>

If you see a shared library with an error of execmod on it,  You can 

chcon  -t textrel_shlib_t PATHTOLIB

And try it again.

All of these bugs should be fixed in FC6,  You could attempt to use the FC6
policy on FC5 or upgrade.  Or you could use 

audit2allow -M mypolicy -i /var/log/audit/audit.log 
and build local customized policy
