SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/firefox from loading
/home/kristjan/.quakelive/quakelive/home/baseq3/quakelive.i386.so which requires
text relocation.

Detailed Description:

The firefox application attempted to load
/home/kristjan/.quakelive/quakelive/home/baseq3/quakelive.i386.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
/home/kristjan/.quakelive/quakelive/home/baseq3/quakelive.i386.so to use
relocation as a workaround, until the library is fixed. Please file a bug

Allowing Access:

If you trust /home/kristjan/.quakelive/quakelive/home/baseq3/quakelive.i386.so
to run correctly, you can change the file context to textrel_shlib_t. "chcon -t
'/home/kristjan/.quakelive/quakelive/home/baseq3/quakelive.i386.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

Comment 1 k.t. 2010-05-17 17:13:43 UTC
Got it fixed by following this:

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2010-05-17 20:26:03 UTC
k.t.  if you read the alert, that is what it told you to do.

Comment 3 k.t. 2010-05-18 04:08:50 UTC
sure, but it would require two more attempts, because punkbuster errors would only appear after you fix quakelive plugin error

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2010-05-18 12:42:34 UTC
Of course quakelive could fix their library, or you can turn the check off alltogether

setsebool -P allow_execmod 1
