In case anyone runs into this problem, I was in a similar situation
with a Fedora 8 -> 10 -> 11 upgrade via preupgrade, which prevented me
logging even via gdm even in permissive mode with an error:
"Could not get name on session bus"
At which point I'd get sent back to the log in screen. Simply
relabelling (via /.autorelabel, fixfiles or restorecon) or yum
reinstall selinux-policy-targeted wasn't sufficient to fix it for me
and it turned out it was necessary to:
# yum erase selinux-policy-targeted
# mv /etc/selinux/targeted/modules /etc/selinux/targeted/modules.old
# yum install selinux-policy-targeted
Followed for good measure by rebooting into permissive mode with
relabelling.  The system now runs fine in enforcing mode.
