    Empathy Stops working after latest update

    Empathy stopped working after this latest update.

    My guess is that the 6 items that showed up in SE linux when I rebooted after the update are the culprit, but I've got no clue where to start looking to be sure, or start generating a useful bug report on this(I migrated to fedora specifically for gnome3)

    I get this error when starting empathy
    There was an error while trying to connect to the Telepathy Account Manager. The error was:

    Failed to execute program /usr/libexec/mission-control-5: Success
    and here is a screen-shot of the SElinux alerts.

    Re: Empathy Stops working after latest update

    Same problem here.
    See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=616506, it's already a bit older, though, it works for me.
    Code:
    chcon -t bin_t /usr/libexec/mission-control*  /usr/libexec/telepathy*

    Thanks Smoking Tux your solution worked great!

    Does a bug need to be filed against this issue, and if so where?

    I'm still figuring out the way fedora does these things are done here.

    I think so.

    and if so where?

    Just take a look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugsAndFeatureRequests.

    Ummm, no. Please don't do that as a fix. There was a bad update of selinux-policy that was pushed to updates-testing (which has been obsoleted and will not be pushed to stable). The correct way to fix this would be to downgrade selinux-policy to the previous version which can be done by running the following from a terminal:

    yum downgrade selinux-policy*

    Just killing your telepathy processes should fix the issue in theory i suspect (including mission-control). I have not encountered the issue myself, but i know what the aim of this update was.

    Never mind, looks like i was wrong. There are some other issues as well.

    My problem is empathy asks me to reinput account information every time I login.
