Description Artur Szymczak 2013-06-19 09:10:14 UTC
Description of problem:
I installed F19-TC5 with cinamon desktop. Then I updated whole system to latest version of software.  Aftrer restart system, I installed sandbox package and run:
# sandbox -X firefox
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/Xephyr from write, search access on the directory xkb.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If aby Xephyr powinno mieć domyślnie write search dostęp do xkb directory.
Then proszę to zgłosić jako błąd.
Można utworzyć lokalny moduł polityki, aby umożliwić ten dostęp.
można tymczasowo zezwolić na ten dostęp wykonując polecenia:
# grep Xephyr /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mojapolityka
# semodule -i mojapolityka.pp
