View Full Version : can't boot after up2date/core test2/enforcing mode requested but no policy loaded
2nd April 2004, 05:47 PM
I am trying to get fedora core test 2 installed and running on an older Dell Optilex G1. I can install the os from the test2 cd's but when I run up2date (which takes forever) and then reboot the system halts with the following message:
"Enforcing mode requested but no policy loaed. Halting now.
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init! "
Does anyone have any advice or should I reinstall or install something else?
thanks alot for your help.

After upgrading the Kernel to the .303 version I was not able to reboot either. I was able to boot to the previous .300 kernel, but I am in the process of re-installing, this time disableing Selinux (as opposed to permissive) from the firewall set up. My guess is that in the latest policy upgrade, something is re-enabling Selinux.

You can use the emergency boot from any fedora cd and edit /etc/sysconfig/selinux. Just change the line "SELINUX=whatever" to "SELINUX=disabled".
I don't know if that will solve all of your problems but it worked for me to get things up and running. I've given up on the core2 test for now tho ... just too much I couldn't get to work properly.

I checked the Selinux, and it was set to:
maybe that wasn't my problem after all:(
When it would try to boot I was getting a "kernel panic" couldn't access hd0, or something like that, but the previous kernel would work fine
