It usually runs in the background and only wakes up when needed,
however you should stil be able to run it from Applications-->System
Tools-->SELinux Troubleshooter with out a problem. I can in fact do
that here. Do you have all current updates? Do you know what version
of policy you are running? Have you recently installed any custom
policy? Did you switch SELinux to permissive recently ?  I assume you
have stopped and restarted the service. Which kernel are you running?
Have you checked for bugs filed against setroubleshoot? There are
quite a few bugs filed against it, maybe one of these is related to
the problem your having.

Try these commands:

rpm -qa 'selinux*'

rpm -qa 'setrouble*'


uname -a

Post the results, with that info there might be more help to be had.

If opinions were really like assholes we'd each have just one
