selinux in ubuntu not allowing me to shut my system down.
 
I decided to load SELinux on one of my systems last night. Now I am use to using it in the RH/CentOS world. On this laptop i am runing Ubuntu 10.04

However I thought this was strange. I loaded it and put it in enforcing mode.

When I went to shut the system down it would not. It only logged me out. I had to put it back to Permissive mode to get the system to shutdown.

Also I don't see a GUI for it in the menus options any place.
In RH there is a UI for it.



I was logged in as my local ID and had to sudo to put it in enforcing or permissive.

I could shut the box down as root if I issued the shutdown command. But as my user I cannot.

What am I missing?

You need to give the user permission to perform shutdowns.
