> total newbie on CentOS. Just firing up an install of 5.5 on a development webserver. Installed Webmin, Awstats, PHPMyAdmin and Drupal successfully. Yet to work on Sendmail and Samba. SELinux in enforcing mode, reporting "SELinux preventing ifconfig (ifconfig_t) "read write" to /var/webminsessiondb.pag (var_t)".
> Googled the error message without real success in finding fix - bug reports showing. Question is whether worth pursuing as SELinux is the way of the future. Or is SELinux a good idea that never really made it's way into the sun. Thoughts please.

Just turn selinux off. setenforce "0" works without rebooting server,
but /etc/sysconfig/selinux is correct place to finalize setting..
