Please revert textrel_shlib_t context for Nemiver plugin
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
I'm working on submitting Nemiver (a GUI C/C++ debugger using gdb) and Gianluca
Sforna has stumbled on a minor problem wherein the perspective plugin needs to
be marked as textrel_shlib_t so that it can properly run without SELinux denials.
While I understand that this can be a security, I believe it is intended
behavior, and will bug upstream about it to change the employed methodology to
something not requiring this execmod capability; but until that time, this is
needed for proper running of the program.
Therefore, I ask that
/usr/lib64/nemiver/plugins/dbgperspective/libdbgperspectiveplugin.so on 64-bit
platforms) be added with this context to the policy, and when this is no longer
needed will ask that it be removed as well.
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.5.3-2
Thanks, Dan; and sorry to keep poking you about this (see comments 21 and on
from bug 223943). :]
Now it seems we need to revert that change as it was in fact not needed. (At
least, I am unable to reproduce the issue.)
Would you please remove the Nemiver plugin's textrel_shlib_t marking?
Thanks for your help!
Is there a reason why the problem seems to be FC5 specific?
Not that I know of, unless you are dealing with a newer version of the plugin.
Reverted in 2.5.4-2
Thanks; and sorry to bug you so much! :]
