Re: selinux now causing trouble with seamonkey

If you want to try further experimentation, you can set the  boolean
allow_unconfined_nsplugin_transition and run the plugins confined.

First I needed to figure out what tool and how to set the boolean with a GUI tool. I finally found out SELinux Administration was the GUI to use. I filtered by nsp and checked the active box. Previously the active box was not checked.

I hope I did this task right.

Starting Firefox had one error. After going to news.aol.com there were many errors related to the plugin manager. This error was different than the bulk of complaints.

SELinux is preventing plugin-config (nsplugin_config_t) "read" to ./nphelix.xpt (usr_t).

Other summaries were:

npviewer.bin (nsplugin_t) "execstack" to <Unknown> (nsplugin_t).

plugin-config (nsplugin_config_t) "read" to ./nphelix.xpt (usr_t).
plugin-config (nsplugin_config_t) "read" to ./nphelix.xpt (usr_t).

I'll file a bug report if more details are needed.
