Disabling SELinux

To run Incredibuild Linux, Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) must be disabled. By default, SELinux is enabled on most Linux distributions.

To check the status, type sestatus in the command line. If the status is not disabled, disabled it using the procedure below.

Note: If the status changes to enforcing after a restart, it means that it was temporarily disabled. In this case, you need to permanently change the status using the procedure below.

How To Permanently Disable SELinux

  1. Open the following file: /etc/selinux/config

  2. Change SELINUX=enforcing to SELINUX=disabled and save the file.

  3. Depending on your OS and distro, you may need to reboot the machine for the changes to take effect.

  4. Verify that status by typing sestatus in the command line.
