Description Lawrence C. Manalac 2008-03-03 20:27:21 EST
The /lib/ld-2.6.so application attempted to change the access protection of
memory on the heap (e,g., allocated using malloc). This is a potential security
problem. Applications should not be doing this. Applications are sometimes coded
incorrectly and request this permission. The SELinux Memory Protection Tests web
page explains how to remove this requirement. If /lib/ld-2.6.so does not work
and you need it to work, you can configure SELinux temporarily to allow this
access until the application is fixed. Please file a bug report against this

Comment 1 Josef Kubin 2008-03-07 11:18:40 EST
It doesn't look as a problem of SELinux. SELinux has revealed a badly written
application ...

To fix your problem try to tweak sebooleans:

# /usr/sbin/setsebool -P allow_execheap=1
