Because I don't think you're worthy of human blood

28 October 2008 21:50

I could argue and make reasonable points - but instead I'm going to be childish/annoying/ignorant/confrontational/blunt:

SELinux sucks.

If I wanted a rational debate I'd approach the topic differently - this is a clue that you shouldn't attempt to convert me.

I got distracted during the "Should selinux be standard? thread, so I will optimistically assume it will not be. Why? Because SELinux is annoying to configure if you understand it, and pointless if you don't.

Definitely agreed. It sucks, nothing more to be said.

Ow God, so true. Pointless.

I'll go with this: it makes sense as a tool for specialized systems manually set up by their admins, but it doesn't make sense as a general-purpose security tool deployed by distributions.

selinux came too early. If it was the solution to apparmor's shortcomings, it would have been seen differently. It's too much complicatedness at once.
