Unless there's a serious fault, SELinux doesn't prevent you from
installing software, nor prevent things from working properly.  It does
prevent things from working abnormally.  And doesn't get in the way in
the normal run of things.

I can't say the same for protective software on Windows.  It frequently
does break the normal behaviour of the system.

Interpretation of the above:  I know nothing about this, therefore I
will denigrate and ignore it.

[tim bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr i686 i386

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.
