Yeah I don't dismiss his "claims". Maybe his problems are to do with
selinux, who knows.
I just dismiss how quickly he gets to choose "selinux" as today's
culprit. It's a bit like watching a Creationist do debugging.
"Starting from the FACT in my BOOK that selinux is the culprit..."
Better to track what you think you don't know as carefully as what you
think you do know, and be ready to disbelieve what you were working with
a minute ago. When you follow those rules most things you say become
speculative and tentative until you have the whole story.
