I always selinux run in permissive mode.

Which problem is that? I have one where switching to consoles 1-6,8,9 
makes the screen go pink with a garbled rectangle in one corner, instead 
of showing the login prompt - it's really fun, especially when X freezes 
on console 7. (and yes, this was with the nv driver).

P.S. The nv driver makes my LCD say: Out Of Range, and then hover 
strangely, and suspend itself after 30 sec. - makes me rather worried 
about my monitor, so I'm back to a stable nvidia driver that works (most 
of the time :) Wasn't kudzu in charge of updating frequency things in 
xorg.conf when I switch monitors? It doesn't seem to be doing its job - 
I had to manually disable 1600x1200 resolution for any picture to come 
up in the first place.
