Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 09:25:13 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

I tried to reproduce this on a fully up-to-date f11 instance with selinux in enforcing mode and f-spot starts fine for me.

Does it still fail for you?
Comment 3 Duncan Innes 2009-07-08 04:23:33 EDT
Looks to be working to me now as well.  Hadn't tried it since rawhide.
