Description Dominick Grift 2007-09-30 06:52:18 EDT
Description of problem:
type=AVC msg=audit(1191118234.434:369): avc:  denied  { execstack } for 
pid=10326 comm="totem-video-ind" scontext=system_u:system_r:mono_t:s0
tcontext=system_u:system_r:mono_t:s0 tclass=process

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

How reproducible:
I have 18 counts of this AVC denial. I suspect they happen at system start-up or
user login. I have recently installed Beagle which i think relies on mono. This
beagle service starts when a session is opened.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

Does Mono need execstack or is this just a badly written application?
Comment 3 Will Woods 2007-10-01 16:17:48 EDT
I notice this denial is coming from part of totem - do you have gstreamer
libraries from livna (e.g. gstreamer-ffmpeg) installed? 

Currently their x264 libraries incorrectly have the execstack flag set on them,
which taints everything that loads those libraries, including totem and friends.

See the fedora-test-list thread that ends here:

Yes i installed some Livna plugins etc. This may explain the issue. i must say
that i haven't had any issue's the last few day's, and there have been some
updates in the livna repository.

It looks to me like the problem has gone now for f8. I'll close this bug.
