Description Joachim Frieben 2009-09-14 12:57:26 UTC
The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing the /usr/bin/evince from using potentially mislabeled
files (/home/frieben/.recently-used.xbel).

Detailed Description:

[SELinux is in permissive mode. This access was not denied.]

SELinux has denied evince access to potentially mislabeled file(s)
(/home/frieben/.recently-used.xbel). This means that SELinux will not allow
evince to use these files. It is common for users to edit files in their home
directory or tmp directories and then move (mv) them to system directories. The
problem is that the files end up with the wrong file context which confined
applications are not allowed to access.

Allowing Access:

If you want evince to access this files, you need to relabel them using
restorecon -v '/home/frieben/.recently-used.xbel'. You might want to relabel the
entire directory using restorecon -R -v '/home/frieben'.

allow nsplugin_t user_home_t:file unlink;

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-09-14 19:43:53 UTC
Please do not run evince under nspluginwrapper.  Remove mozplugger or turn off nsplugin support.

yum remove mozplugger


setsebool -P allow_unconfined_nsplugin_transition 0
