SELinux warning saying VBoxGuestAdditions requires text relocation -> Fixed in SVN/3.1.4

Reported by: bobpeers Owned by:
Priority: major Component: guest additions
Version: VirtualBox 3.1.0 Keywords: SELinux Xorg text relocation
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows

Description

Using a Fedora 12 client on a Windows hosts I get an SELinux saying: SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/Xorg from loading /opt/VBoxGuestAdditions-3.1.0/lib/VBoxOGL.so which requires text relocation.

I logged the bug against Fedora 12 but according to them it's problem with Virtualbox, see the Fedora bug report here.  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=544853

According to the developer the library has been built incorrectly and the solution can be found in the following link:  http://people.redhat.com/~drepper/selinux-mem.html

Nope. Wasn't fixed. It still fails with 3.1.2. (Fedora 10/11, 64-bit)

See my forum link.

correction: SELinux problems are not fixed, but the message from SELinux logs now is different (not text relocations), so may worth opening a different bug.

What is the new message?

comment:7 Changed 4 years ago by Technologov

No sorry... I take my words back. I misread the SELinux logs. It is still about "text relocations".

comment:8 Changed 4 years ago by michael

It seems that the fix never got backported to the 3.1 branch. That should now be fixed though. Thanks for pointing it out.

comment:9 Changed 4 years ago by Technologov

Speaking of branches, it makes sense to check v3.0.x branch as well... My understand that it is "LTS" branch and will be maintained for long time...

comment:10 Changed 4 years ago by frank

Your understanding is not correct, there is no such thing like LTS as we don't provide a direct support for non-paying customers.
