SELinux is preventing /opt/MATHWORKS_R2008A/bin/glnx86/MATLAB from loading
/opt/MATHWORKS_R2008A/sys/opengl/lib/glnx86/libGL.so.1.5.060001 which requires
text relocation.

Detailed Description:

The MATLAB application attempted to load
/opt/MATHWORKS_R2008A/sys/opengl/lib/glnx86/libGL.so.1.5.060001 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
/opt/MATHWORKS_R2008A/sys/opengl/lib/glnx86/libGL.so.1.5.060001 to use
relocation as a workaround, until the library is fixed. Please file a bug

Allowing Access:

If you trust /opt/MATHWORKS_R2008A/sys/opengl/lib/glnx86/libGL.so.1.5.060001 to
run correctly, you can change the file context to textrel_shlib_t. "chcon -t
'/opt/MATHWORKS_R2008A/sys/opengl/lib/glnx86/libGL.so.1.5.060001'" 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

allow unconfined_t lib_t:file execmod;

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2010-05-03 09:05:18 UTC
Execute the chcon command suggested in the alert.

# chcon -t textrel_shlib_t

To make this permanent

# semanage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t
