Description of problem:

The /lib/ld-2.5.so application attempted to load /usr/lib/libx264.so.54 which
requires text relocation. This is a potential security problem. Most libraries
do not need this permission. Libraries are sometimes coded incorrectly and
request this permission. The SELinux Memory Protection Tests web page explains
how to remove this requirement. You can configure SELinux temporarily to allow
/usr/lib/libx264.so.54 to use relocation as a workaround, until the library is

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

glibc-2.5-3 [application]x264-0-0.7.20061028.lvn6 [target]

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2006-11-03 12:16:37 EST
Why are you reporting this against glibc?  There is no bug on the glibc side.
You have some third party incorrectly built library, which you either should
mark as textrel_shlib_t using chcon, or recompile properly to avoid text
Comment 2 Tom Weniger 2006-11-05 11:49:18 EST
I repoorted it againt glibc because that was the program listed in the SELinux
Troubleshooter. My apologies for the confusion since I did a bugzilla search and
did not find a related issue open. I later found the problem was related to mplayer.
