system-config-selinux confusion make system unbootable
Last modified: 2008-01-03 10:59:32 EST
Description of problem:
Slightly confused when using system-config-selinux. I disabled it a while ago
and decided to enable it again today. So I put it into enforcing as it used to
be, it said that I would need to relabel, so I reboot and not much go right.
Seems most stuff wont be able to do their things because of restrictions. I
didn't manage to boot so needed to go rescue-cd.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNOME SELinux Management Tool 5 (system up to date at 29/12/07)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Disable SELinux and reboot.
2. Enable enforcing SELinux, mark relabel and reboot.
System won't boot.
System would boot.
Additional info: It wouldn't relabel with SELinux disabled so i just put it in
enforcing thinking it would sort it out. Maybe some more clarifying in the gui
would help. :)
You probably need to reboot in permissive mode.
With the latest updates of selinux policy this should not though.
