Description of problem:
A SELinux sandbox program that used to open Firefox in a sandbox window does not open the sandbox window, nor Firefox, anymore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/bin/sandbox
Steps to Reproduce:
$ /usr/bin/sandbox -X -t sandbox_web_t -W /usr/bin/metacity /usr/bin/firefox
This message: "Unable to switch to root to clear tmp dir"
Window opens with Firefox in it.
I do not see any corresponding messages in /var/log/messages or /var/log/secure
Fixed in policycoreutils-2.1.13-59.fc18
Also you should not need metaticy any longer since we have moved to openbox and firefox seems to work fine with it.
Also eliminated bogus "Unable to switch to root to clear tmp dir" message
