CentOS 7 won't boot after change selinux configuration


My machine is based on Vmware workstation 12.

Here is the thing.
I mounted a shared dir from win7 onto my machine using cifs. Yet the mounted dir is not allowed to write. So I followed some instruction from the Internet, which I am regreting, to change the configuration file of seLinux to disable it, and reboot the machine. And that is everything happening.

Messages below is where the machine stuck.
[FAILED]Failed to start Login Service.
[FAILED]Failed to start Authorization Manager.
[DEPEND]Dependency failed for Dynamic System Tuning Daemon.
[FAILED]Failed to start Network Manager.
[DEPEND]Dependency failed for Network Manager Wait Online.


Orz...

Help and thanks advance.

What instructions? Post them or post a link to the site. It's highly unlikely anyone will be able to help with this information unless they are a serious exert in the area.

Is this on a VM? A virtual machine?

Unhappy

Problem remains. This broken centOS is saved in my virtual machine VMware 12. I created a new one and was occupied with some work since then. And that's a 'sorry' to guys paying attention to this post.

I can't find the original article now, sorry.
The only thing I did before it broke is, change "SELINUX=permissive" to "SELINUX=disabled". Is this helpful?

Yes, as you see, a VMware 12 workstation.

Well we need to see that tutorial/instructions. Even you permanently disabled SELINUX it will boot normally.

Well - and I may be scorned for saying this - it's a VM... Burn it down and launch another - and don't do it again. How much time could possibly be invested in it?

Ehhhh. That may be a dead end. I was so confused then and went for any possible way to fix the problem. Now I get the lesson.

Thanks any way.

LOL. You are actually right, on the job side. I was just a little bit curious about the situation I went into. But time were wasted and I am on a new page, and this problem should not bother me any longer.

And happy new year[smile].
