Fedora Core 5 Sept. 27, 2006, 9:45 p.m.

Hello, I installed today Houdini 8.1 at a Fedora Core 5 Linux. The first problem was the installation script, which stopped at installation with an error message. To correct this change in both installation scripts, houdini.install and sesinetd.install, the "tar xf“ against ”tar –wildcards -xf“ with a text editor. Now the installation should run without an error message.
Next problem was the SELinux extension of FC5. When you start Houdini you get an error message ”cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied". To solve this you can first disable the SELinux extension with system-config-securitylevel, which you start as root from console and click at the second tab of the gui at which you can disable it, or second change the security context of the library files as following:
# cd /opt/hfsX.X.XXX (Your Houdini base install directory)
# chcon -h -R system_ubject_r:textrel_shlib_t ./dsolib/
# chcon -R system_ubject_r:textrel_shlib_t ./houdini/dso/
# chcon system_ubject_r:textrel_shlib_t ./mozilla/*.so ./mozilla/*.a
Now Houdini should start with no error messages in the terminal. If you disable the SELinux extension and enable it again, the SELinux is relabeling the whole file system at system boot and you have to do the last step with chcon again.
