Description Jonathan Kamens 2005-06-02 14:29:16 UTC
When I run rpm --verify selinux-policy-targeted, it reports:

S.5....T    /etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts.homedirs

When I examine this file, I see entries for, which makes me 
suspect that the file was updated somehow when I installed flash, and that 
this was a correct update.  The rpm --verify output doesn't make it clear that 
this file is allowed to be dynamically updated as a result of installs of 
subsequent packages.  Should it be listed with a "c" to show that it's a 
config file?

Maybe this is related.

When I browse a webpage with flash images, Firefox freeze. In /var/log messages:

localhost kernel: audit(1117814713.345:6): avc:  denied  { execmod } for 
pid=3252 comm="firefox-bin" dev=hda6 ino=327319
scontext=user_u:system_r:unconfined_t tcontext=user_u:object_r:default_t tclass=file

The first problem requires a fix in the spec file to make it config.  It will
show up in the next release.   The second problem is a labeling problem.
