fluendo plugin installation in Fedora 6

For some reason this information is impossible to find. The first step is the same as it is elsewhere: you do a

mkdir ~/.gstreamer-0.10/plugins

and copy the plugin .so files in there, e.g.:

tar xjf fluendo-mp3-1.i386.tar.bz2
cp fluendo-mp3-i386/ ~/.gstreamer-0.10/plugins/

but with Fedora you also have to set the SELinux security context:

cd ~/.gstreamer-0.10/plugins/
chcon --type=textrel_shlib_t *.so

If you're curious, you can see the security context of a file like so:

secon --file
