I got a selinux alert when i am trying to run java from openjdk 7 b62 installation.. text relocation ? why icetea 6.0 has no problem ?

------------- copy&paste selinux alert follows :


SELinux is preventing java from loading
/home2/jdk1.7.0/jre/lib/i386/client/ which requires text relocation.

Detailed Description:

The java application attempted to load
/home2/jdk1.7.0/jre/lib/i386/client/ which requires text relocation.
This is a potential security problem. Most libraries do not need this
permission. Libraries are sometimes coded incorrectly and request this
permission. The SELinux Memory Protection Tests
( web page explains how to
remove this requirement. You can configure SELinux temporarily to allow
/home2/jdk1.7.0/jre/lib/i386/client/ to use relocation as a workaround,
until the library is fixed. Please file a bug report
( against this package.

Allowing Access:

If you trust /home2/jdk1.7.0/jre/lib/i386/client/ to run correctly, you
can change the file context to textrel_shlib_t. "chcon -t textrel_shlib_t
'/home2/jdk1.7.0/jre/lib/i386/client/'" You must also change the
default file context files on the system in order to preserve them even on a
full relabel. "semanage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t

Fix Command:

chcon -t textrel_shlib_t '/home2/jdk1.7.0/jre/lib/i386/client/'
