I have never noticed system-config-selinux coz i don't use.

but try this if it really exists on repos.
Code:
yum list all |grep "system-config*"
and if it exists, simply

Code:
yum install system-config-selinux

cheers!!

Is Selinux enabled on your system? It is an extra security for linux operating systems, If you are a home user i think plain linux is pretty secure and fine. I have noticed ISP's disabling selinux saying it causes more difficulties rather enhanced security.

Hope somebody will help you!!


Cheers!!

This is one of those question that you will probably have better luck getting a good answer over on centos.org's forum.

Maybe you should keep your thoughts private then...

...and quoting the vague misconceptions of others sounds not that constructive either.

Why on earth? There's lots of Centos users here at LQ.

Ditch the "s", it's "policycoreutils-gui".

You are correct about the "s".

I think the fact that this thread started on 5/16 and a proper answer did not show up until 6/15 proves the point of my suggestion. Yes, there are a lot of Centos users here (including me), but when things are renamed it is often easier to go to the source to see what the new name is.

Hmm. I'd like to think it's more a placement issue. Would this have been in Red Hat or at least in Distributions it would have gotten more exposure, but maybe that's just my wishful thinking. This isn't some hardcore Centos-centric issue that can't be solved by 'yum -C search "system-config-selinux"' or say rpm.pbone.net or one of us, right? Anyway, in essence you're right: nearly a month is way too much.

I know this is a super old post, but for reference: yum provides works to find the right package

I know this is a super old post, but I was looking for something similar and stumbled on this old thread.

In case someone else ever looks, the command "yum provides <file or feature>" works...for example:

If I type: yum provides system-config-selinux

The response (shortened) is:
Trying other mirror.
updates/7/x86_64/filelists_db | 2.1 MB 00:00:01
policycoreutils-gui-2.5-17.1.el7.x86_64 : SELinux configuration GUI
Repo : base
Matched from:
Filename : /usr/bin/system-config-selinux

Cheerio!

While some things do apply from version to version many do not. IF I remember correctly the version of yum in 5.3 did not have the "provides" functionality implemented yet. There are also those instances when certain packages have been built a little odd and some tools will not function or function as expected due to this. It is one of the reasons many people are so picky (particularly in Centos) that EXACT build procedures are followed. Chasing your tail for a couple of hours because some packager did not follow build protocol can be a hair pulling experience. Fedora Core used to be notorious for this. I ran FC4 through F9?(6 month life cycle) before switching to Centos 5 (now on 7)(mostly for 5? year life cycle). Basically if a thread is about a EOL(end of life)(Centos 5 is EOL) version you are probably better off leaving the thread dead. Do NOT misunderstand I am NOT trying to discourage you from posting.
