You are more likely to get help if you post at least the first few
messages to the entire list.  It might also help to see the output from
ls -Z / (i.e. is your root filesystem labeled), and ps -eZ (i.e. are
your processes running in the right domain).

Chris PeBenito of the Hardened Gentoo project just posted a "sestatus"
tool on the NSA selinux list the other day that might be helpful in
giving status about your system's SELinux setup, see
