chcon -t unconfined_t </path/filename>
sounds good, but what do you do with fedora 7. You change the permissions, and in less than 5 minutes, it's back to the same denials. With friends added. It got to the point where it would not let me use my cd and dvd rom drives, access my mail, etc... And THEN, it started denying anything with defaut_t
What is with selinux?
