Description J. William Cupp 2005-07-30 16:31:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/8.02 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en)

Description of problem:
When system-config-securitylevel is run from the terminal, a GUI application 
starts for the modifying of SELinux policies.  There is a checkbox labelled 
"Enforce?" which is a two state option (checked or clear).  But the file /etc/
selinux/config reveals via text comments there are three possible states: 
SELINUX=enforced, SELINUX=permissive, or SELINUX=disabled.  Moreover, the text 
file implies the values are to be set in all lower case letters.  However, 
making the changes via the GUI then later inspecting the file reveals the values 
in init-caps case (e.g., "Permissive" rather than "permissive").  If this is 
intentional or has any meaning then it ought to be explained -- either in the 
help file for the GUI or in the text comments for the config file (or both).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  run system-config-security level from terminal
2.  gedit /etc/selinux/config

Yeah the options on that screen are pretty confusing.  It should be made more
clear with an update I'm almost done with.
