SELinux Notes

RHEL4 comes with SELinux, which supports tighter access control for processes. If SELinux is enabled (SELINUX in /etc/selinux/config is set to enforcing, SELINUXTYPE is set to either targeted or strict), you might encounter problems installing Oracle Corporation RPM packages.

Red Hat has an update that solves this. It involves an update of the security policy specification to handle the install structure of the RPMs provided by Oracle Corporation. For further information, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=167551 and http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2006-0049.html.

Hmmm. It would have been nice to see this particular one at the beginning on the installation process. I fought with RHEL4 for a little bit to figure out why mySQL wasn't working with SELinux.
