SELinux and Steam in Wine


I am new to Fedora and hence new to SELinux. I was trying to get Steam working and everytime I do, SELinux freaks and does not allow Steam to fully work (I believe). Here is the post that describes my problem:


Thanks for all the help.

Also, I thought I should post this in the Security section. If that isn't right feel free to move it.

To hopefully get more answers heres my warning:


SELinux is preventing the ntlm_auth from using potentially mislabeled files

Detailed Description:

SELinux has denied ntlm_auth access to potentially mislabeled file(s)
(/home/theking/.xsession-errors). This means that SELinux will not allow
ntlm_auth to use these files. It is common for users to edit files in their home
directory or tmp directories and then move (mv) them to system directories. The
problem is that the files end up with the wrong file context which confined
applications are not allowed to access.

you may need to be root to do it
su -
restorecon -v '/home...

you should be able to ignore this denial without loss of functionality. I think this denial should no longer be reported, atleast in rawhide. It might get implemented in f9 later if it is not already.

any other denials/issues?
