Booting the kernel.

Unable to load SELinux policy (No such file of directory). Halting now.

Try adding this to the kernel bootup line ( edit grub at boot )



kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 ro root=UUID=64d8152d-508c-46ff-b8cd-9c2f4dc52510 rhgb quiet selinux=0

I tried the same think I booted from the recovery disk edit grub.conf and added selinux=0 at the end of boot entries and it still wouldn't let me boot. I get an error something like invalid syntax or something like that.

Is there a way to remove or reinstall selinx?

try to boot from a recovery disk and disable SELinux it in /etc/selinux/config as well
