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

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.
How to Disable SELinux

Then, fix your contexts. I can't help you there.

Thanks for the site. However as usual one of the commands is not in
openSuSE
That is mewrole. Even as root or at least it was not found

newrole -r sysadm_r

raid:~ # locate newrole
/etc/pam.d/newrole
/usr/bin/newrole
/usr/share/man/man1/newrole.1.gz
raid:~ # rpm -qf /usr/bin/newrole
policycoreutils-2.0.62-4.10.i586
