Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /opt/openoffice.org2.3/program/soffice.bin from loading
/opt/openoffice.org2.3/program/libvclplug_gen680li.so.1.1 which requires text

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

How reproducible:
Starting OpenOffice without having jdk and without following command: 
chcon -t textrel_shlib_t /opt/openoffice.org2.3/program/libvclplug_gen680li.so.1.1

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
The /opt/openoffice.org2.3/program/soffice.bin application attempted to load
/opt/openoffice.org2.3/program/libvclplug_gen680li.so.1.1 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
/opt/openoffice.org2.3/program/libvclplug_gen680li.so.1.1 to use relocation as a
workaround, until the library is fixed. Please file a bug report against this

The following command will allow this access:chcon -t textrel_shlib_t

Openoffice works fine after this command. 

Expected results:
Openoffice should run normally.

Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2008-01-24 18:07:13 EST
/opt/openoffice.org2.3/ ... is *NOT* where my rpms go. Logging against the
openoffice.org component of our rpms is totally bogus. Either use the fedora
provided openoffice.org rpms, or log the bug directly against selinux-targeted.
