Which security program has caused this problem?
Following the bunny trail, from ls through "info coreutils 'ls invocation'"
leads to this:

Following the file mode bits is a single character that specifies
whether an alternate access method such as an access control list
applies to the file. When the character following the file mode
bits is a space, there is no alternate access method. When it is
a printing character, then there is such a method.

GNU `ls' uses a `.' character to indicate a file with an SELinux
security context, but no other alternate access method.

A file with any other combination of alternate access methods is
marked with a `+' character.

So you have a SELinux security context that says "no access".


This Selinux issue has caused me to completely reload after discovering that every directory and file was unuseable because of a "." This problem came from a zypper dup or up.

Question is how do I get rid of the "." on my home directroy and files.
