Selinux, like the restrictions on running as 'root' are a massive pain
in the ass when you are running a standalone system. Selinux is
completely disabled, so that is not the problem.
I always run myth as root and have never seen any ACL related events
before the 2.6.17 kernel.
And before someone tries to start a religious flame war about running as
root, just STFU.
I have run networked OS/2 machines here at the office for over 10 years
before switching over to linux. In all that time, I NEVER had a problem
with deleting stuff which would have been avoided if I had been running
in a restricted system. Sure I did stuff that I regretted doing but that
was not a system failure, that was a failure of the nut holding the
wheel. And if I really want to do damage I can always do 'cd /; rm -rf
*' )Ok that will leave the hidden files!)
Sometimes security just plain gets in the way. For example, you cannot
autostart as root....why not? Because some geek has decided that that's
a bad thing. And in the context of a mythbox, it is not a *bad* thing..
especially when the box is not even connected to the internet and has no
modem!.. I do mythfilldatabase by usb key!
And at the moment, my mythbox is down. I cannot even get mythbackend to
run, since it tries to tune to the 'non-existent' PVR tuner and crashes.
Gee must e Friday morning... only three more working days till Monday!
