SELinux and Fedora

SELinux and Fedora

I think that one of the problems of SELinux is that it tries to add security to Linux-based
systems _tranparently_.  Existing software should not need to be modified (at least not in any
significant way), and should ideally not even have to know that SELinux is there.  And that is
to my mind why it is so hard to work out what is going wrong when something does go wrong -
the software giving out error messages is not aware of the source of the "problem".
