Unforch, as huge numbers of us have found, "permissive" isn't. I just had to
turn it off in the grub command line before the wifi in my lappy with a fresh
F7 install would allow the transmitter to make a peep. "Permissive" is an
oxymoron the users don't need. Will it get re-enabled here? Maybe on the
third tuesday of the 7th week of august. What remaining life I have (I'm 72
now) is far too valuable to me to spend it screwing with a broken framework
such as selinux seems to be.
