Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

well it is such a hell to get vmware working again that i considert disabeling selinux fully
but relabeling is not an option on the disable option???
reboot is not relabeling!?
i say to myself this is a forced way to MUST use SELinux
or you try yum remove akonadi or selinux?
it try's to remove half the system!??
*** DO NOT UNINSTALL ANY SELINUX PACKAGES ***
Why would you want to disable or remove SELinux in the first place? It's put on the systems for a reason - to protect your data. I would first recommend simply learning the basics and keep your boxes running in "enforcing mode". If you absolutely *MUST* disable SELinux you can do so like this.

* Please note *
You don't have to relabel the OS once you disable SELinux and reboot. The system would automatically have to relabel the FS if you were to turn SELinux back on and reboot. Albeit if you *MUST* relabel the entire FS, I suggest using the trick similar to "forcefsck".
Run this command and reboot:
