I did a touch /.autorelabel and reboot yesterday morning, and made the 
setroubleshooter work. These have occurred since then. There is some old 
.xauth files from last year in the folder, but none seem to have 
incorrect context.

Tried restorecon -R -v -n /root
- there were no replies.

restorecon -R -v /root
- there was also no replies.
My understanding is that any files that needed their secontext restored 
woudl have been echoed.

Is {restorecon -v './root'} the same as the above ?
It does not echo any response either.

Does that include an upgrade F8-F9beta ?

In any case I'm doing a full relabel again, after I send this message, 
and I'll see if that solves it...
