Hello Marco,

I installed the 11.2 from
on my laptop yesterday evening (CET) with the following packages:
- selinux-tools
- selinux-policy
- selinux-policy-refpolicy-standard
- libselinux*
- libsemanage*
- policycoreutils
- checkpolicy

I use kernel from 2009-10-26 and used
'yast2 bootloader'->Edit to activate the checkbox 'Enable SELinux'

After rebooting 'sestatus' showed that selinux was enabled.

If this is not true for your setup run 'selinux-ready' as root
and verify the output. This script is in package selinux-tools.

It is true that some code does not work with SELinux enabled
because we do not officially support SELinux but just "make
it run". Nothing more, nothing less. :)
You can submit bug reports and put me in CC to make this situation
change for 11.2's successor. Thanks.


Hello Thomas,

Thanks for these infos!
I will check it again; I think I have not installed libsemanage though.

My 11.2 comes from several dist-updates, starting from the various
milestones, it's not a fresh installation.

Hello Listmates,

I attempted to enable selinux on my 11.2 Rc1 but it fails with the
error: no selinuxfs found.

I followed the "how-to" as per en.opensuse.selinux but it seems
something is lacking from my understanding, or perhaps from current

Suggestions are welcomed.


That keeps failing as well onto 11.2 RC1.
If also disabling selinux at boot, with selinux=0, then
gnome-system-monitor fails to start, claiming a selinux issue.
