Selinux is causing all sorts of problems on my system.

This all just started accruing today. For instance now when the system goes down I see a million audits flying across the screen. Another thing SE seems to be doing is killing initd during the boot process making it re spawn its self about 6 times before it can finally boot. Any suggestions ?

This is typical for Fedora, have you tried setting SELinux to permissive instead of enforce or whatever the highest setting is, via security.

I just say no at install time, so I don't know how you disable it once installed.

In post #14 in the thread link here, I show how to fix it. Fedora is destined to have quirks because there is no money involved, Red Hat puts focus on Red Hat Enterprise Limited because there is money involved. If Fedora was stable, would you bother giving them the money for the Enterprise edition? or would you go with the free edition?.

I am sure its a labeling problem. Looking at the logs every thing that it is preventing has the _t label, but I have already tried to relabel the system and that didn't do any good

And how *exactly* did you do the relabelling? Please post the actual commands.

No you don't. You removed the distro. You are entitled to your own opinion and you may carry a grudge against Fedora (apparently due to lack of knowledge) but please refrain from posting that kind of "humoristic" "answers" when people look for answers.

Those are uncut B.S. arguments. *Any* GNU/Linux distro has "quirks", money involved or not. RH doesn't want you to move over to RHEL. Those who want or need RHEL for business reasons know that already.
