Also affects OpenOffice.org1.9m109. Not only that but
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.9 not only has this problem but also throws
errors on lines ass follows:  
invalid context system_u:object_r:crypt_device_t on line number 287
invalid context system_u:object_r:system_dbusd_var_run_t on line number 888

Comment 2 G. Roderick Singleton 2005-06-28 19:46:30 UTC
latest update of selinux breaks releases so they do not start at
all. Changing files_context to accomodate teh OOo libraries in their installed
directories does not work.

Comment 3 G. Roderick Singleton 2005-06-28 19:47:30 UTC
Solution to above problem. Disable SELinux.

Comment 4 Daniel Walsh 2005-07-03 15:21:29 UTC
Fixed in selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.16
