Unhappy problem on installing printer


I just upgrade to Fedora 11.

I have problem in installing the printer, no matter add printer in local network or Windows Printer via Samba.

The summary is as follow:

SummarySELinux is preventing gs (cupsd_t) "execstack" cupsd_t.

Detailed DescriptionSE
Linux denied access requested by gs. It is not expected that this access is required by gs and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ Or you can disable SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended. Please file a bug report against this package.

Thanks for your reply.

You mean set "system default enforcing mode" to Disable ?

Hi, thanks for your reply.

However, I have no idea how to "generate a local policy module to allow this access".

Could you please teach me how to do it?

Thanks.

Yes. You can do that through editing the file /etc/selinux/config. Edit the file and change the option

SELINUX=disabled.

Else you can also change it using system-config-selinux

Hello,

This is for disabling SELinux entirely. If you just want to create a local policy have a look at this link: SELinux.

Kind regards,

Eric
