Description of problem:
Upon installation of Fedora Core 4, a problem I previously had with FC3 has
grown much worse. Formerly, ntpd would not run. Now, many services do not run,
including (at least) nifd, networks, etc. and many others.
A work around has been found in setting SELinux policy to "permissive" rather
than "enforced." When "enforced" is used, the FC4 installation is basically
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set SELinux policy to "enforced".
When policy is "enforced" the boot up text screen shows many services that
report FAILED on start up. Generally, the error message reveals file
permissions are denied, such as to file 'libc.so.6' or other shared object
The screen scrolls by much too fast to read it in detail. If there was a means
to pipe this text scroll to a log file, I'd like to do so and submit it as an
addendum to this bug report. (Anybody want to help me learn how to do this?)

You try to relabel the system with the following command
