It sounds like the new system is writing data into the filesystem that 
the older libraries cannot read, or cannot meaningfully interpret.

The SELinux contexts don't mean anything to the old 
system/libraries/policy, so disabling SELinux is probably the best 
option.  (I did not expect to ever advise disabling SELinux).
