Description Dean Mander 2008-11-11 16:57:34 EST
Description of problem:
fresh F-10 preview install, amarok doesn't play mp3's out of the box, so I installed xine-lib-extras, xine-lib-extras-freeworld and friends (from rpmfusion I guess) since amarok uses the xine backend.

I relaunch amarok, now it plays mp3's correctly, but I notice there is an error message on the ffmpeg-libs: see below.

Each time I restart amarok it creates a new, identical selinux alert, during the startup the application. However, playing mp3's is fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ffmpeg-libs 0.4.9-0.51.20080908.fc10
amarok.i386 0:1.94-2.fc10
selinux-policy-targeted 3.5.13-18.fc10

How reproducible:
Install amarok with xine extra libs so it can play mp3's.
Start amarok: during initialisation the error

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-11-11 17:30:57 EST
!= amarok bug.  closing->upstream per the following:

In short,
1.  It's an ffmpeg issue

2.  already reported to upstream selinux
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2008-11-11 17:33:12 EST
could consider patching our local policy in the meantime, I'll leave that to our maintainers to decide.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-11-13 08:40:38 EST
Fixed in selinux-policy-3.5.13-20.fc10

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
