See? An SELinux fan has just gone into attack mode as a result of my suggestion to turn it off. Didn't take long, either. Are you seriously going to argue that when the topic of disabling SELinux comes up, people (like you, apparently) come out of the woodwork to scream that doing so it wrong? Simply peruse most any thread in which turning off SELinux is suggested.

Starting from Fedora 6, disabling SELinux is no longer an excuse because tools to diagnose the problem and report them are available, that method is the last resort.

I could safely rest my case now. But I will point out that utilities like lpadmin fail silently, claiming to have created a printer without actually doing it, as late as RHEL5. The "created" printer even works... until the next reboot, at which point no evidence remains that it ever existed. Turning off SELinux fixes the problem. It's that sort of inexplicable time-waster that leaves me skeptical.

And why should anyone be required to provide you, or anyone else, an explanation for administering their own machines the way they see fit?

Have you submitted a bug report about that problem? As an administrator of RHEL5 for this example, maybe you should contact the technical support Even the best administration will need help and the biggest mistake IMHO is to keep the problem for oneself.
