SElinux is a super powerfull security kernel stuff...
it stops hackers from penetrating your machine... for example.. if you are running a webserver, and hackers hack the server.. SElinux will lock them down... so they wont be able to do anything.
for a desktop machine, you dont need it... turn se-linux off by adding a kernel parameter... cant remember what. look it up on google.
selinux is preventing your normal aplications from running because it has not been configured proberly to know what is and isnt a threat
