Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:05:30 EDT
Description of change/FAQ addition:
Are other file systems besides ext2 and ext3 supported under SELinux,
such as XFS or ReiserFS?
Start of thread:
Version-Release of FAQ (found on
<notting> XFS supports labels, as I recall.
<jamesm> devpts can also be labeled with xattrs.
<sct> Yes, the XFS xattr support got the security.* namespace added on
Jan 30 this year, so it should work fine
devpts, of course, isn't really a user-installable filesystem.
To be included in 1.0-5.
## begin snippet from FAQ
Q:. What file systems can I use for SELinux?
A:. The file system must support xattr labels in the right security.*
namespace. In addition to ext2/ext3, XFS has recently added support
for the necessary labels.
