Problem with administration SELinux in Fedora 7


At me a problem with administration SELinux in Fedora 7. In my opinion, there are not enough boolean-values in comparison with Fedora Core 6. On an example, completely there are no values of a kind <daemon_name> _disable_trans which are responsible for on/off-switching of protection for any service.

So in particular, at me a problem with access to DB MySQL of a demon postfix in my post system. And disable protection SELinux for mysqld I cannot. It is possible to disconnect only SELinux entirely.

I ask to help.

Error log:

I do not need to disable completely SELinux. It is necessary for me to switch off protection only concrete services. In Fedora to 7 me it is not possible to make it.
