Description Opie Reger 2007-12-25 23:55:37 EST
Description of problem:
The /usr/lib/firefox- application attempted to load
/usr/lib/firefox- which requires text relocation. This
is a potential security problem. Most libraries do not need this permission.
Libraries are sometimes coded incorrectly and request this permission. The
SELinux Memory Protection Tests web page explains how to remove this
requirement. You can configure SELinux temporarily to allow
/usr/lib/firefox- to use relocation as a workaround,
until the library is fixed. Please file a bug report against this package.
