SELinux help thread

Given that SELinux ships by default on Fedora, RHEL, CentOS, and others, yet it is often poorly understood, it might be good to have a (mega) thread to bring visibility to issues and get support on this topic.

Feel free to post questions, answers, and resources.

Thank you. I need to learn more about SELinux.

I don’t use it proactively to do things I want to do, I only use it when it complains about something and I have to fix it. But, I assume it’s doing “good” things for me, so I refuse to simply disable it.
