Doc Type: Deprecated Functionality
Doc Text:
.Runtime disabling SELinux using `/etc/selinux/config` is now deprecated Runtime disabling SELinux using the `SELINUX=disabled` option in the `/etc/selinux/config` file has been deprecated. In RHEL 9, when you disable SELinux only through `/etc/selinux/config`, the system starts with SELinux enabled but with no policy loaded. If your scenario really requires to completely disable SELinux, Red Hat recommends disabling SELinux by adding the `selinux=0` parameter to the kernel command line as described in the link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/using_selinux/changing-selinux-states-and-modes_using-selinux#changing-selinux-modes-at-boot-time_changing-selinux-states-and-modes[Changing SELinux modes at boot time] section of the link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/using_selinux/[Using SELinux] title.
