Description Christopher Stone 2007-12-12 14:33:24 EST
Description of problem:
When running vmware in enforcing mode, it is unable to display any graphics and
just displays a blank screen.

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

Additional info:
The following module fixes the problem for me:

policy_module(mymod, 1.0)
require {
        type xdm_xserver_t;
        type vmware_host_t;
        class shm { read unix_read getattr associate };
#============= xdm_xserver_t ==============
allow xdm_xserver_t vmware_host_t:shm { read unix_read getattr associate };
