I think that there's little doubt that selinux is a good idea. But it's
only been recently that it worked well enough for me to actually leave
it on, and even now I get AVC denial messages for stuff Fedora itself
installs (got a few the other day when starting firefox on a *freshly
upgraded* FC10 system.
So why isn't it much simpler and less trouble to just turn off
selinux in the first place? I get the same level of security in the
end, and much less hassle in the meantime :-).
(Some days I feel like I should start the Linux Curmudgeon blog,
but there is probably one out there already - I haven't looked).
This does strike me as a little sloppy. If Fedora installs it,
shouldn't Fedora set selinux to allow it? Maybe I'm missing something...
I dunno. Selinux has always struck me like a car alarm that gives you
thirty seconds to enter in a 100 digit code. Faced with that, it's no
wonder people shut it down.
