:SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/xulrunner-2/plugin-container from 'execmod' accesses on the file /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so.
:*****  Plugin allow_execmod (91.4 confidence) suggests  **********************
:If you want to allow plugin-container to have execmod access on the libflashplayer.so file
:Then you need to change the label on '/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so'
:# semanage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t '/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so'
:# restorecon -v '/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so'
:*****  Plugin catchall (9.59 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that plugin-container should be allowed execmod access on the libflashplayer.so file by default.
:Then you should report this as a bug.
:You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
:allow this access for now by executing:
:# grep plugin-containe /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Same problem here. 

"dmesg|grep libflash" says

Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2011-10-05 20:40:33 UTC
Is this an old libflash?

Comment 3 Heiko Adams 2011-10-05 20:53:01 UTC
Don't know. Timestamp says it from 24. Sep 03:45 so

Comment 4 Dominick Grift 2011-10-05 21:08:04 UTC
I think this might only apply to i686 not x86_64

I have tried the flash 11 64bit and it does not need text relocation it seems.

"anyone yet reported that the latest adobe flash player flash-plugin- has text relocations in it?"

Comment 5 Scott R. Godin 2011-10-05 22:13:07 UTC
flash-plugin- indeed contains text relocations. Shame on you Adobe

SETroubleshoot denial follows


SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/thunderbird-3.0/thunderbird-bin from loading
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so which requires text relocation.

Detailed Description:

The thunderbird-bin application attempted to load
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.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/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so to use relocation as a workaround, until
the library is fixed. Please file a bug report.

Allowing Access:

If you trust /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so to run correctly, you can
change the file context to textrel_shlib_t. "chcon -t textrel_shlib_t
'/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.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/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so'

Dan  i get the same problem and i have the latest Flash 11 and im on F16 up to date also

Comment 7 Daniel Walsh 2011-10-06 13:59:30 UTC
Looks like adobe screwed up again.  Looks like we need to turn on textrel_shlib_t again.

Fixed in selinux-policy-3.10.0-39.fc16
