User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009020410 Fedora/3.0.6-1.fc10 Firefox/3.0.6

Detailed Description:
[SELinux is in permissive mode, the operation would have been denied but was permitted due to permissive mode.]
The gnome-screensav application attempted to load /usr/lib/fglrx/libatiadlxx.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 web page explains how to remove this requirement. You can configure SELinux temporarily to allow /usr/lib/fglrx/libatiadlxx.so to use relocation as a workaround, until the library is fixed. Please file a bug report against this package.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install fglrx packages from compiz-fusion repo (including deps)
2.reboot the system
3.After reboot with updated kernel, and login, it appears on the top right in Selinux icon.
Actual Results:  
Same as given in results box

As a workaround I used chcon command:

chcon -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/fglrx/libatiadlxx.so'
