Summary: SELinux is preventing vbetool (vbetool_t) "read write" to ./video.rom


Could someone please help me how to fix this problem which is preventing me from playing streaming video. When I look consult the SE Linux trouble shooter I get this message:

SELinux is preventing vbetool (vbetool_t) "read write" to ./video.rom
(var_run_t).


Previously I had this all running and when I installed Open Office I got my streaming video stopped working. I am using MPlayer and Gecko video players.


Summary:

SELinux is preventing vbetool (vbetool_t) "read write" to ./video.rom
(var_run_t).

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by vbetool. It is not expected that this access
is required by vbetool 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:

Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials. You could try to restore
the default system file context for ./video.rom,

restorecon -v './video.rom'

If this does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this access.
Instead, you can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinu...fc5/#id2961385) Or you can disable
SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended.
Please file a bug report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi)
against this package.

It is a little information that will help out when some people are having issues with Selinux so if you don't have anything to help the OP then don't comment please.
