I am not an engeneering either... There was even a fedora class room
on selinux, which I did not attend because of work.

I resent that many places, the best solution offered to setup services
is to turn down selinux. I think is something that technical people
should try to explain better to the rest of us. Some day we shoul
start looking for those places where thre ae commands for turning off
selinux and comment on alternatives.

I found myself battling among selinux and automatic bug reporting tool
after installing F12. I finally gave up and choose to unistall the bug
tool from family computers, and turned off selinux on my computer.

Best regards
