Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-07-01 09:05:35 EDT
Did you install some third party software to make this work?

Look for a library marked execstack

# find / -exec execstack -q {} \; 2> /dev/null | grep ^X

You can add this for now if you just want the print job to work by adding custom policy 

# grep cupsd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mycups
# semodule -i mycups.pp

execstack is considered fairly dangerous, it is explained here.

Comment 2 Hai Au Bui 2009-07-01 22:33:33 EDT
Thank you very much. It works now like a charm.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2009-07-05 22:06:29 EDT
What did you do, just add the policy or did you find the library with the execstack flag?
Comment 4 Hai Au Bui 2009-07-06 00:08:57 EDT
I just added a new policy and everything worked.I don't understand about the library marked execstack.
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2009-07-06 13:50:49 EDT
Can you just run this command to look for execstack libraries on your system

# find / -exec execstack -q {} \; 2> /dev/null | grep ^X
