Hi Aaron,

Thanks for that. I'd come to the conclusion that the policy was the issue...
Selinux is working, it's just configured in such a way that when enforced
the policy starts denying me access to... everything, which is a policy
issue as far as I understand it. I did briefly look at the reference policy
and built it from source but don't have the time to play around until I have
something usable (some things are still denied e.g. cryptsetup mounting

That's not the first time I've been told to install Fedora for selinux so
have gone ahead and done so.
