Description of problem:
usually everyone uses Ctrl+Alt+Fn to change the vt from X. however it
doesn't work if the kernel without selinux=0 is booted. when it
happens, X server looks like freezing, because it shows the desktop
and no mouse icon say. but when I press Alt+F7, the mouse icon appears
again and I can operate something on X.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot the kernel enabled selinux
Actual Results: no changes to the vt.
Expected Results: can changes to the vt.
Reassigning to SElinux policy component.
Could you send the avc messages from /var/log/messages? Since you ran
with selinux=0 you need to relabel. You should use enforcning=0 which
turns of the denials.
I have tried enforcing=0 first, but it didn't help. and even if this
problem appears on my test box, no related messages are output to
btw I haven't seen this issue on FC2-1.91-test2 yet. so I'm closing
this and will reopen if I see this again.
