Never have disabled SELinux. Never had any problems. On the contrary, it has saved me from creating problems.
It was originally developed by the NSA, but was released as open source, and now Redhat is the primary developer.
If there are issues with it, then it affects all linux mainline kernels as it has been part of the kernel since the 2.6 versions.
If there are issues due to the NSA being involved, then just disabling SELinux would not have any affect on it. You would still have the issues. (You think the NSA would make it that easy to get their hooks out of anything?
