I want to run a .msi file on Fedora 17. After installing Wine Windows Program Loader on my Linux machine, it failed to run the file. A check on /var/log/messages shows the following line:

Jan 11 17:32:26 some kernel: [15554.188474] type=1400 audit(1357983146.108:13): avc: denied { mmap_zero } for pid=4779 comm="wine-preloader" scontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:wine_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:wine_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tclass=memprotect

An online forum has a suggestion to toggle a switch with:

setsebool -P mmap_low_allowed 1

I did that but it gave me an error:

libsepol.scope_copy_callback: entropyd: Duplicate declaration in module: type/attribute entropyd_var_run_t (No such file or directory). libsemanage.semanage_link_sandbox: Link packages failed (No such file or directory). Could not change policy booleans

Next, I try setting SELinux to permissive mode with:

setenforce 0

After checking that SELinux is on permissive mode, I tried to run the file again, but to no avail. What could be causing this problem? And how do I solve it?
