Description vfiend 2007-06-16 05:49:59 EDT
Description of problem: After installing the brasero package from the
repositories and adding some files to burn, brasero claims the files are much
larger than they are and keeps increasing the calculated size of the added files
until it crashes. A very large amount of SELinux error messages then show up
(saved text file of them attached)

Sure, here it is
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2007-06-19 09:45:38 EDT
This is strange.

According to the log.  The brasero is trying to write to the /proc files or
every process on the system.  It does show some attempt to mount an unlabeled_t
file system.  And mount trying to send messages to dbus.

If you update to selinux-policy-2.6.4-17

Do you see any change in the behavior.  IE Please try again and send me the

Updated to selinux-policy-targeted 2.6.4-20.fc7 from updates-testing

Brasero doesn't crash of cause selinux denials anymore, though it does keep
counting file sizes to infinity, I guess it's just broken.

The SELinux policy doesn't seem to be breaking it anymore though, so that's odd..
