Selinux and LMDE4 Cinnamon Edition

Post by Dude »

I installed selinux from the repositories. Then I ran sudo selinux-activate. sestatus shows selinux is installed and activated, but in passive mode. I tried to set it to enforced mode using sudo setenforce 1. But then, my entire screen freezes and goes mostly black. I am able to get to the text based console screen using ctl-alt-f1 to login at the command line and reboot the system. The system comes up normally, but selinux is still in passive mode. How can I change selinux to enforced mode so my system doesn't hang like that?

I tried checking the selinux installation, but it looks like there is a problem:

$ check-selinux-installation
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/check-selinux-installation", line 33, in <module>
results += test.test()
File "/usr/share/selinux-basics/tests/24_fsckfix.py", line 24, in test
raise IOError("/etc/default/rcS not found, is this Debian?")
OSError: /etc/default/rcS not found, is this Debian?
