Firefox/Evolution crash when printing under SELinux/strict/enforcing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
Firefox-2 and Evolution crash when printing is invoked under strict SELinux
poliy [ It is presumed that Firefox-1.5 also crashes, and that the same
problem exists for targeted policy ]
The problem is that both Firefox and Evolution need access to /dev/random -
presumably so as to build a temporary print spool file name. Default policy
allows access to /dev/urandom, but not /dev/random.
A simple workround is to add
to evolution.if and mozilla.if respectively.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.4.6-36
Fixed in current release
