policy updates will come, that correct these things?
SELinux on FC4 was pretty painless, so the ideas for
the new SELinux policies surprise me a bit.
Yes we will be updating policy today. SELinux in FC5 is suitable for desktop.

I have created a yum repository for FC5 on

This has an updated tool chain for SELinux and an updated policy. These will also be available for FC5 test updates tonight. If everything goes ok, they will be updated in a few days.


Thanks! I had a dep error with the attached repo file.
