Fedora 5 , Flashplayer, SELinux … a mess !!

March 29, 2006

In Fedora Code 5, “mozilla/firefox flashplayer” plugin does not work due to default selinux policy. Following error is logged in /var/log/message –

audit(1143622706.235:134): avc: denied { execmod } for pid=3034 comm=”firefox-bin” name=”libflashplayer.so” dev=dm-0 ino=6979685 scontext=user_u:system_r:unconfined_t:s0 tcontext=user_u:object_r:user_home_t:s0 tclass=file

To resolve this problem, following command is needed to be executed from root console

[root@frozen ~]# setsebool -P allow_execmod=true
