doesn't work if the kernel without selinux=0 is booted. when it
happens, X server looks like freezing, because it shows the desktop

again and I can operate something on X.

How reproducible:

Reassigning to SElinux policy component.
Comment 2 Daniel Walsh 2004-03-29 13:17:50 EST
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.
