Well put. Most of us in charge of ISP's, OSP's etc, wont touch it, because it has given many people in many companies, in many places around the world, many headaches, which I guess is why most DC's I've known to run RH, have all but 1 dumped it in moves to either Slackware or Debian, and if the suggestion made by someone that Debian is going

I'm not suggesting it, I'm STATING IT CATEGORICALLY:


Debian SELinux support

The Debian packaged Linux kernels have had SELinux support compiled in (but disabled by default) since version 2.6.9. In order to activate SELinux the parameter selinux=1 must be passed to the kernel when booting. Alternatively, you can compile your own kernel with SELinux enabled by default.

The SELinux support is in constant flux, so it is generally recommended that you use an up-to-date installation of unstable if you want to experiment with SELinux (for instance, the Debian packaged kernels did not include "audit" support until version 2.6.13).

In addition to kernel modifications, several user-space application need to be modified to support SELinux properly. Patched versions of these should be in Debian unstable by now.

Note that there is a difference between not having SELinux, and having
SELinux, but disabled.

Hmm, Slackware doesn't have it yet. That would be better than LFS.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
