SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/pk-gstreamer-install from loading
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstffmpeg.so which requires text relocation.

Detailed Description:

The gst-install-plu application attempted to load
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstffmpeg.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
(http://people.redhat.com/drepper/selinux-mem.html) web page explains how to
remove this requirement. You can configure SELinux temporarily to allow
/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstffmpeg.so to use relocation as a workaround,
until the library is fixed. Please file a bug report.

Allowing Access:

If you trust /usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstffmpeg.so to run correctly, you can
change the file context to textrel_shlib_t. "chcon -t textrel_shlib_t
'/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstffmpeg.so'" You must also change the default
file context files on the system in order to preserve them even on a full
relabel. "semanage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t

Fix Command:

chcon -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstffmpeg.so'

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2009-11-20 21:13:42 UTC
Execute the chcon command in the sealert.

I will make this the default label again.
