Changing security options from Security Level Configuration dialog freezes system
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:05 EST
Description of problem:
Changing security options from Security Level Configuration dialog freezes system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Select Desktop --> System Settings --> Security Level and Firewall --> SELinux.
Making any changes to Enforcing Current or Relabel on next reboot options will
immediately freeze the system requiring a power off/on to recover.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Follow the above steps
Changes to have been effected and system operation to continue.
Note there is nothing logged regarding this event.
The machine locks up as soon as you click on the option in
system-config-securitylevel? It shouldn't be doing anything except for touching
/.autorelabel and possibly changing some settings in /etc, so I don't understand
how it could be locking up at this point?
My bad, your right I forgot that one little step; "select OK". It is at that
point that the lockup occurs.
I haven't tried this lately but I will give it another try when I get home
tonight and report the results.
I am unable to reproduce this. Any luck?
