Description louisgtwo 2006-08-11 16:26:13 EDT
When I visited a page with an applet it froze firefox. I looked in the logs and
saw this:

Aug 11 15:13:55 soncomputer kernel: audit(1155323634.469:38): avc:  denied  {
execmem } for  pid=3198 comm="gappletviewer"
tcontext=user_u:system_r:unconfined_t:s0 tclass=process

GCJ applet viewer probably should be fixed in the future to not require execmem
permissions but meanwhile the SELinux targeted policy can be modified to allow this.

This is a duplicate of the RHEL bug

I'm not sure it makes any sense to trace these separately.

ekiga-2.0.1-5 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
