:SELinux is preventing /usr/lib64/xulrunner-2/plugin-container from 'create' accesses on the file videostats.sxx.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that plugin-container should be allowed create access on the videostats.sxx 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

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-03-26 10:10:28 EDT
Where is "videostats.sxx" created? It looks like you will need to do the restorecon command on your homedir

$ restorecon -R -v ~/

should fix. Also please update to the latest policy. We added some fixes.

$ yum update selinux-policy-targeted --enablerepo=updates-testing

If the problem still persists, pleese reopen the bug. Thank you.
Comment 2 Julian Sikorski 2012-06-28 15:00:53 EDT
I got directed here by setroubleshoot when trying to report a problem with googletalk-plugin. Issue would happen whenever I try to start a video call from gmail web client.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2012-06-29 17:27:22 EDT
Did you try the restorecon?
Comment 4 Elad Alfassa 2012-07-02 03:30:02 EDT
restorecon did fix this issue for me.
