F16 SELinux Management missing

Greetings,

Fedora 14 had a nice graphical tool to manage SELinux. It was in the "Administration Menu" and called "SELinux Management". I don't see SELinux Management in any of the menus on Fedora 16 (failsafe mode). Is this tool still available? Can I install it using yum?

Sagittar thanks for your reply.

yum says that system-config-selinux isn't available.

It's provided by the policycoreutils-gui package.

Re: F16 SELinux Management missing

It is a optional mandatory access control security architecture that complements the traditional Linux discretionary access control security architecture.

Re: F16 SELinux Management missing

Hello All,
I don't know if I should continue this thread or start a new one. I'm having the same trouble that others had (in earlier versions) with the SELinux management application (system-config-selinux). After a clean install of FC16 the menu entry for selinux management was missing, so I installed the policycoreutils-gui package via apper. The install seemed to go well, and an entry in the application launcher appeared. Left clicking that entry produced a security dialog asking for a password. After accepting the pw, the dialog disappeared and no application was started. Not even a little bouncy thing! If I call the application from a terminal window after su - ing I get the following message:

/usr/share/system-config-selinux/system-config-selinux.py:71: Warning: g_object_get_valist: object class `GnomeProgram' has no property named `default-icon'
xml = gtk.glade.XML ("/usr/share/system-config-selinux/system-config-selinux.glade", domain=PROGNAME)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-selinux/system-config-selinux.py", line 186, in <module>
app = childWindow()
File "/usr/share/system-config-selinux/system-config-selinux.py", line 82, in __init__
self.add_page(statusPage.statusPage(xml))
File "/usr/share/system-config-selinux/statusPage.py", line 79, in __init__
if self.read_selinux_config() == None:
File "/usr/share/system-config-selinux/statusPage.py", line 166, in read_selinux_config
self.initEnabled = selinux.selinux_getenforcemode()[1]
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

I have tried reinstalling the package using yum after clearing the cache, but the result is the same.
I can't find any missing packages when I use apper to look for packages related to selinux.

Can anyone give me some ideas?
Thanks in advance
D.Weiner
