Also, to add a bit of fuel to the fire, I just rebuilt my 2.6.20-rc4 again 
after having found some more selinux stuff in the previous build that I 
am now running without.

1: Now my logs are clean again.

2: It took me 27 minutes to build that selinux free kernel.  Now check 
this, after having added quite a few usb network related modules as I'm 
trying to get into a wap11 via the usb port, which will allow me to do a 
reset to factory, something I cannot do from the snmp interface because 
that interface requires the old password, something I've forgotten in the 
8 months since I last used this device.

#> time ./makeit
[snip about 200k of make output]
All done! Edit grub.conf, reboot and chose your kernel at the grub prompt

real    8m42.183s
user    4m21.606s
sys     1m11.805s
[root coyote linux-2.6.20-rc4]#                 

Now, I could have done something to speed this system up that's not 
related to selinux, but the only things I've done is to rip out the livna 
versions of mplayer and mplayerplugin with --nodeps, and put them back in 
from dries before they were missed, and then restart firefox from its own 
file menu pulldown, (normal quits and re-runs didn't seem to do it) and 
now both foxnews and cnn video's now play, although cnn's videos act like 
the server is in need of quite a bit more iron in its diet.

Now, somebody, preferably Dr. Smalley, please explain to me why I should 
run something that takes a 9 minute compile and makes it take 27 minutes 
to do it.  And the rest of the system just plain feels snappier.

Go ahead, I'm waiting...  In the meantime I'm gonna reboot and see if 
dmesg says it found that wap11 on the end of a usb cable plugged into the 
front panel.

Cheers, Gene
