So you’re cruising along getting your new Fedora 14 install all updated then you go to install your Dropbox and BAMMM! ERROR!
You see something like this:
SELinux is preventing /home/nomsalis/.dropbox-dist/dropbox from making the program stack executable.
Long story short.. it’s a known issue with the Dropbox source and the updated SELinux security policies.
Basically, the one thing you shouldn’t do is disable SELinux! You silly rabbit you..
Just run this instead:
execstack -q _ctypes.so X _ctypes.so
execstack -c _ctypes.so
execstack -q _ctypes.so - _ctypes.so
You should be all set!
I’m not too clear on the details but you can read a little more about it here:
