Thanks for that tip.  Forgot to list that file as one I had checked, but
no good as far as the error message. Any other file ideas?

I don't seem to have those issues.  At least, all the dmesg, etc files I
checked so far showed my services (that were meant to start) all started
without error at bootup.

I will try that, thanks.  This is done by editing
the /etc/selinux/config, yes?  Where does it print the warnings after
that?  I guess that means a reboot to bring up the warnings?
