I can no longer login to KDE with SELinux enabled.

I have to disable it in /etc/selinux/config to login

It won't 'enter' the password with Selinux enabled now
- you can type the username - > press enter and it goes to the password box - however it will not input the password when you press enter... With SELinux disabled - its fine
- it worked previously

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot computer with selinux
2. fail to be able to enter the password...
Actual results:

Not being able to login to KDE (when selinux is enabled)

Expected results:

Being able to login with selinux enabled

As mentioned on the other thread (bug 832840)

# chcon -t xdm_exec_t /usr/bin/kdm

Fixes the issue.

Should be fixed in the next selinux update

Thanks everybody !
