Description of problem:


SELinux is preventing totem from loading
/home/y2k103/.gstreamer-0.10/plugins/libgstflumpeg4videodec.so which requires
text relocation.

Detailed Description:

The totem application attempted to load
/home/y2k103/.gstreamer-0.10/plugins/libgstflumpeg4videodec.so 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
(http://people.redhat.com/drepper/selinux-mem.html) web page explains how to
remove this requirement. You can configure SELinux temporarily to allow
/home/y2k103/.gstreamer-0.10/plugins/libgstflumpeg4videodec.so to use relocation
as a workaround, until the library is fixed. Please file a bug report
(http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi) against this package.

This is a bug in the Fluendo provided codecs, not Totem itself. Details and work-around on Fluendo's bug tracker:
