#5690 closed defect (fixed)

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

Reported by: Bob Owned by:
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.

comment:6 by Michael Thayer, 15 years ago

What is the new message?

comment:7 by Technologov, 15 years ago

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

comment:8 by Michael Thayer, 15 years ago

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 by Technologov, 15 years ago

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 by Frank Mehnert, 14 years ago

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