Ummm... that's NOT good advice, in my honest opinion.

That's rather like telling someone to disable the windows
firewall because it might stop them from using the chat
rooms in AOL, and it's just "too complicated" for ordinary
users to make the exceptions/open ports to run IRC instead.

>From what I've seen, most SELinux hassles result from
doing too much from root access (i.e. when it could/should
have been done from user-level access instead).

I would advise the OP to subscribe to the selinux list and
be ready to post copies of the AVC denials when requested.
