dmesg after SELinux update July 10th

After SELinux-polcy update of July 10th, set to enforcing, and relable on
reboot, most avc messages removed but Desktop still failed.
1. At logon popup for default session still there.
2. Nautius splash screen hangs, click on it, Desktop goes back to Logon screen.

3. Set to permissive and reboot.
4. Desktop come up.

The dmesg shows 2 avc messages - 1 for reconstore and 1 for meticty (execmem).
Since execmem is a global setting, it must be a bug in meticity.
I will file a bug on meticity and ref to this one.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2006-07-11 10:10:42 EDT
restorecond should not be a problem and will be fixed shortly.  Your remaining
problem is metacity which is reported in  #197910  So closing this as a
duplicate of that bug.

You can turn on the allow_execmem boolean to allow you to run with SELinux in
enforcing mode

setsebool -P allow_execmem=1
