Description Heiko Adams 2007-10-01 13:50:50 EDT
Description of problem:
The SELinux policies shipped with RHEL 5 are preventing the Adobe Reader 8
browserplugin from being loaded.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Adobe Reader 8
2. Start Firefox from a shell
3. Navigate to about:plugins
Actual results:
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library
[/opt/Adobe/Reader8/Browser/intellinux/nppdf.so: Kann den Segment-Schutz nach
der Relozierung nicht wieder herstellen: Keine Berechtigung]

Expected results:
The plugin should be loaded without any interception of selinux

Additional info:
The problem was discovered on a CentOS 5 System but it should even affect RHEL 5
systems too.
Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2007-10-01 16:19:44 EDT
We have never seen this package installed in this location.

You can fix this by executing the following commands

semanage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t

restorecon -v /opt/Adobe/Reader8/Browser/intellinux/nppdf.so

If this is a standard package the path in the RHEL5 bas should be updated.
