Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 213100
SELinux prevents opening of hyperlink from OpenOffice.org in Epiphany
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem:
With Epiphany set as preffered application for brower, hyperlinks from
OpenOffice.org cannot be opened due to SELinux. SELinux policy is set to
'enforcing'. Epiphany and epiphany-extensions are installed, as well as all
major OpenOffice.org components. Behaviour is the same for all OpenOffice.org
components. Hyperlinks open in Firefox 1.5 just fine.
Could not start GNOME Web Browser
Startup failed because of the following error:
Connection ":1.14" is not allowed to own the service "org.gnome.Epiphany" due to
The Connection ":1.14" part varies, I've seen it say ":1.12" as well.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install epiphany (and epiphany-extensions if necessary) and set as preferred
browser in GNOME preferences to open links in new tab
2. Create or open an OpenOffice.org document with a hyperlink
3. Click hyperlink within document.
SELinux error as above
Link should open in new epiphany tab as specified in GNOME preferences
This sounds like a badly labeled shared library. Do you see any avc messages in
/var/log/message or /var/log/audit/audit.log
Closing as I believe this was a labeling problem.
