Has anyone had experience with setting up SELinux on Arch? I'm thinking about trying Arch, it seems pretty cool, but I'd really like to have SELinux support. Thanks.

No support for SElinux as far as I know. Last was back in 2004 where developers vhere working on a selinux project, but it was pretty darn complicated to get it to work.

Fedora got it full integrated, but I guess you allready know that

Yes, I did. =) Well, thanks for the info. You probably saved me a lot of time trying to get it to work. I might try it anyway though. Thnaks.

I've talked to a few that got SELinux working in Arch. The problem is that SELinux is so personalized that you can't have a common config. There are a few other security alternatives that aren't as extreme, but i can't remember them.
