Description Klaus Lichtenwalder 2010-07-13 18:35:09 UTC
Description of problem:
Trying to start a sanboxed firefox doesn't work any longer

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
~) klaus@nepomuk [1024] $ rpm -qf /usr/bin/sandbox

How reproducible:
sandbox -X -t sandbox_web_t firefox www.handelsblatt.de

Actual results:

'/home' is required to be a shared mount point for this tool to run.  
'/home' can be added to the HOMEDIR variable in /etc/sysconfig/sandbox
 along with a reboot will fix the problem.

Expected results:
opens a sandboxed firefox

Additional info:
Contents of /etc/sysconfig/sandbox
# Space separate list of homedirs
# original mit S

The second line was added by me, as the error message says HOMEDIR, the file only states HOMEDIRS...

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2010-11-03 12:00:53 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
