Unfortunately, though I approve of the whole SELinux idea in concept,
found it impossible t use, even with F7. I ran it in Permissive mode
so I'd see what errors it was catching, but found only two things:

1. It kept repeating the same errors every day, with long detailed
instructions on how to fix this.
2. The instructions didn't work!

So every time I come across it now I turn it off completely. Which is
a pity because if it worked correctly it would probably be a useful
thing to have on my main outward facing server.
