Description Matthias Clasen 2007-03-27 15:02:24 UTC
We noticed that we have 3 selinux tools in the system > administration menu now: Firewall and SELinux SELinux Management SELinux Troubleshooter The SELinux functionality in system-config-securitylevel is very limited and totally redundant with what SELinux Management offers, so we think it Would be to remove the SELinux aspects from s-c-s and make it just a firewall configuration tool. The menu entry would then just be "Firewall"

Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost. This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.

system-config-selinux is not available as a bugzilla component so I am adding a comment here as the original report is also closely UI related. Hope that's ok. Running system-config-selinux shows the title as "system-config-selinux.py" instead of something that matches the menu entry like "SELinux Administration" or atleast "system-config-selinux".
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2007-04-30 13:02:49 UTC
Fixed title in policycoreutils-2.0.14-2 The only SELinux functionality left in securitylevel is for turning on or off SELinux.
Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2007-07-30 15:54:03 UTC
There will be a new configuration tool for the firewall soon: system-config-firewall. Please have a look at: http://people.redhat.com/twoerner/system-config/
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2007-07-31 14:01:24 UTC
The only reason there is any SELinux in the old tool at all at this time was for firstboot. So as long as firstboot has a way to disable,permissive,enforcing SELinux then this is ok.
Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2007-07-31 14:33:45 UTC
I'm looking at removing this panel from firstboot. Ideally, we'd like people to have SELinux enabled and enforcing by default. Right now, the screen in SELinux doesn't make sense to a lot of people and advertises a way for people to easily just turn off a main part of the security features of their system.
Comment 7 Thomas Woerner 2007-09-10 11:26:51 UTC
Fixed in system-config-firewall, which replaces system-config-securitylevel.
