Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2005-05-12 18:55:23 UTC
The machine locks up as soon as you click on the option in
system-config-securitylevel?  It shouldn't be doing anything except for touching
/.autorelabel and possibly changing some settings in /etc, so I don't understand
how it could be locking up at this point?

Comment 2 Steve Romero 2005-05-12 21:39:58 UTC
My bad, your right I forgot that one little step;  "select OK".  It is at that
point that the lockup occurs.

I haven't tried this lately but I will give it another try when I get home
tonight and report the results.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2005-05-25 20:57:46 UTC
I am unable to reproduce this.  Any luck?

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2005-09-23 14:58:35 UTC
Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to
investigate the issue further, and we have not received the feedback we
requested, we will assume the problem was not reproduceable or has been fixed in
a later update for this product.  If you have further details, feel free to
reopen the report with the additional details attached.
