Description Antonio A. Olivares 2007-09-12 19:28:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When starting wine, selinux troubleshooter appears

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

How reproducible:  Fire up wine with an application

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  start application
2.  when starting up setroubleshooter fires up
Actual results:

selinux report here:  

    SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/Xorg (xdm_xserver_t) "unix_read unix_write"
    to <Unknown> (wine_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/bin/Xorg. It is not expected that
    this access is required by /usr/bin/Xorg and this access may signal an
    intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or
    configuration of the application is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access
    You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see
    http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 Or you can disable
    SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
    recommended. Please file a http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
    against this package.
