Description of problem:
The Fedora Core 3 SELinux FAQ references /etc/sysconfig/selinux twice:
It should refer to /etc/selinux/config.
Also worth noting, though unrelated to documentation,
/etc/sysconfig/selinux exists on a fresh FC3 installation, but has no
effect on configuration, and doesn't belong to any package. This is a
bug in the installer or one of the packages, but my bug report on the
issue has been closed as NOTABUG.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Read the FAQ entries mentioned.
2. Follow the advice offered.
3. Be confused when SELinux configuration doesn't change.
Actual Results: /etc/sysconfig/selinux has no impact on SELinux
configuration, despite the FAQs occasional assertion that it does.
Expected Results: /etc/selinux/config should be consistently used in
The FC3 version of the SELinux FAQ are no longer maintained
I am closing this ancient bug.
The is an FC5 FAQ http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq/
and a list of proposed updates in the wiki at
Additional FAQ work will likely remain in the wiki but there is also
a F10 SELinux Users Guide http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-user-guide/
