Description Matthew Nicholson 2008-11-04 15:21:57 EST
Description of problem:
xguest is broken in Fedora 9 right now (fully up2date as of posting)

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum update to get uptodate
2. yum install xguest
3. it kills gdm, causes selinux denial
Actual results:
gdm dies and restarts. selinux denial/alert raised:
SELinux is preventing dbus-daemon (xguest_dbusd_t) "read write" to socket (xguest_t). 

Expected results:
to be logged into gnome as user xguest in locked down session

Additional info:

While searching for similar issues, I saw a mention of libxcb from rawhide fixing this. On a test vm, did a" yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rawhide update libxcb", after that logging in as xguest works.
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:10:40 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
