Alas I can't tell you the answer, but if you transfer this post to the linux security category you might stand a better chance of getting helpful answers. I realise that I have no idea how to transfer a post and that posting in multiple locations is generally frowned upon, so my post is singularly unhelpful, but with any luck a moderator might be able to lend a hand. Maybe re-posting is OK once in a blue moon. I wonder what my confessor will say...

I'm interested in SElinux, so I'll be looking out for the fix with a great deal of interest. What are your preferred books and web sources on the subject, both for understanding the rationale behind it and for using it?

Best wishes, Elfenbein

I wasn't sure where to post this since the whole problem seems so complicated. Software seemed the most broad so I put it in here. Sorry if it was the wrong forum.

I'm not particularly interested in SELinux. I had only heard enough that it seemed like a good idea. Now that I've found it needs some maintinence that has left me clueless I'm not so sure I want it at all.

I put selinux=0 in the grub boot menu and that has stopped the lockouts when I access the ossec wui. I don't have a compeling reason to turn selinux back on and try to figure out why it behaved the way it did since we didn't plan on using it in the first place.

If anyone is having problems with selinux in the future and finds this post the only advice I can give is to turn it off completely by putting selinux=0 in the kernel line.
