SELinux prevents KDE media players from working properly
Last modified: 2008-12-02 10:50:53 EST
Description of problem:
When SELinux is in enforce mode, Kaffeine and Dragon Player are not able to play divx nor flv videos. Audio is heard, but no image is shown.
Also, both of them and also kplayer, mplayer and other media players become unstable when reproducing any kind of video, choking when playing, freezing and crashing often.
Problem is solved when SELinux is disabled.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set SELinux to enforce mode
2. Install above mentioned applications and required codecs
3. Try to play divx and flv videos
Only audio is played, no images. Other kinds of video are played, but the media players become unstable. MPlayer and KPlayer work, but are unstable as well
Videos should be correctly played by media players.

The requested audit.log file
attached the requested file.
Very big file, the events in there do not show the dates when they were generated. Don't know what in there would be useful for you to trace the problem, so I attached the entire file.
Looks like you have a badly labeled system, or your homedir does not contain labels.
touch /.autorelabel; reboot
