    VMWare (5.5.1 Build 19175) and SELinux fix

    If you have problems with vmware in rawhide because of SELinux.

    Problem:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware: error while loading shared
    libraries: /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0:
    cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
    Fix:
    Code:
    # chcon system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t \
    /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0

    The selinux context is incorrect in flash too.

    ls -Z
    -rwxr-xr-x justin justin user_u:object_r:user_home_t
    flashplayer.xpt
    -rwxr-xr-x justin justin user_u:object_r:user_home_t libflashplayer.so

    Changed to

    chcon system_u:object_r:texrel_shlib_t flashplayer.xpt libflashplayer.so

    ls -Z
    -rwxr-xr-x justin justin system_u:object_r:textrel_shlib_t flashplayer.xpt
    -rwxr-xr-x justin justin system_u:object_r:textrel_shlib_t libflashplayer.so
