Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 289721
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/totem-video-thumbnailer from loading /usr/lib/libFLAC.so.8.1.0 which requires text relocation.

Description of problem:
The above SELinux alert occurs everytime a new video is added.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.SELinux enabled as in default install
2.Add new video files to desktop/open file browser window
3.Review SELinux alert
Much too invasive and annoying for everyday use - is this really that big a
Have you done what the setroubleshoot app has suggested? Have you contacted
the destributer of /usr/lib/libFLAC.so.8.1.0 to tell them they have a problem
in the way they build their shared library?
chcon -t textrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/libFLAC.so.8.1.0
Should stop SELinux from complaining. But getting the vendor to fix the library
is the best long term solution.
You can also tell setroubleshoot to ignore the error, if it does not seem to
cause a problem.
libFLAC should not require this. Reassigning to flac to be fixed.
As there's no version number, I'll guess this is an old libflac.
