Description Peter Gordon 2007-02-14 02:15:56 UTC
Hello. I'm working on submitting Nemiver (a GUI C/C++ debugger using gdb) and Gianluca Sforna has stumbled on a minor problem wherein the perspective plugin needs to be marked as textrel_shlib_t so that it can properly run without SELinux denials. While I understand that this can be a security, I believe it is intended behavior, and will bug upstream about it to change the employed methodology to something not requiring this execmod capability; but until that time, this is needed for proper running of the program. Therefore, I ask that /usr/lib/nemiver/plugins/dbgperspective/libdbgperspectiveplugin.so (and /usr/lib64/nemiver/plugins/dbgperspective/libdbgperspectiveplugin.so on 64-bit platforms) be added with this context to the policy, and when this is no longer needed will ask that it be removed as well. Thanks!

Thanks, Dan; and sorry to keep poking you about this (see comments 21 and on from bug 223943). :] Now it seems we need to revert that change as it was in fact not needed. (At least, I am unable to reproduce the issue.) Would you please remove the Nemiver plugin's textrel_shlib_t marking? Thanks for your help!
Comment 3 Gianluca Sforna 2007-02-17 23:54:20 UTC
Is there a reason why the problem seems to be FC5 specific?
Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2007-02-20 20:10:32 UTC
Not that I know of, unless you are dealing with a newer version of the plugin.
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2007-02-21 13:59:42 UTC
Reverted in 2.5.4-2
Comment 6 Peter Gordon 2007-02-22 18:21:49 UTC
Thanks; and sorry to bug you so much! :]
