This error comes from libselinux.
Comment 2 Gary Yuen 2007-09-14 10:36:59 EDT
I've noticed the error only occurs when I use the kernel parameter selinux=0. Maybe the removal of the 
selinux packages makes no difference. 
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2008-09-09 16:31:24 EDT
Old lost bugs. Libselinux can not tell if it's disabled or not until this library is loaded.
