X11 forwarding does not work for xguest_u
Last modified: 2012-06-20 08:34:11 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to use X forward to xguest_u user -> this is not possible
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
# be sure to have xorg-x11-xauth package installed
useradd -Z staff_u staff
useradd -Z xguest_u xguest
# now set passwords for staff and xguest users
DISPLAY variable empty -> X11 forwarding not working
DISPLAY variable not empty and with correct content (i.e. localhost:10.0) -> X11 forwarding working
I don't think this is something we want to allow for the default xguest_u user. He should not be sending his X Display to other machines.

Actually I was thinking about a boolean but yes, it does not make sense to allow it for xguest_u.
