Kernel Panic error on boot due to selinux policy strict !
I was browsing for some extra apps on YUM extender today and I noticed one for "selinux ploicy strict", I wanted to try that one, so I installed it through YUM from the fedora repo, and went to my selinux configuration and switched my policy to strict just to see what it's about really, then suddenly my programs started to lag, and I had to forcequit some apps I had running, so I decided to shutdown as I had no idea what caused the issue, then after I restarted I get a Kernel Panic error as follows on my bootup :
Red Hat nash version 4.2.15 starting
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
Found volume group "VolGroup00" using metadata type lvm2
2 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroup00"now active
load_booleans: boolean mozilla_readhome no longer in policy
load_booleans: boolean mozilla_writehome no longer in policy
sepol_genbools: Warning! Error while reading /etc/selinux/strict/booleans
/sbin/init: error while loading shared libraries: libsepol.so.1: failed to map
segment form shared object : Permession denied
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
I had no idea that this will happen and now I am stuck with this problem.
The machine is a Thinkpad R50e running Fedora Core 4 and the latest kernel, the worst part is that I was worknig on some important documents that are due tomorrow ,when this happened and I can't afford to lose my data !
I have the Fedora Core 4 Installation media and I was wondering how can I fix this maybe in rescue mode or any other approach.
Thanks in advance.
