Question To use SELinux enforcement, or not to use? That is the question.

I was running Ubuntu and updated to the latest kernel which tossed my system. Instead of trying to fix it I wanted to move on to Fedora. I installed Fedora 13 and installed the nVidia graphics drivers from the instructions in this forum.

I am wondering though. How do I know if I want to use SELinux enforcement or not?

Also, is there a configuration applet for the graphics card that might show up somewhere or that I can install? I had one going for me in Ubuntu but don't see anything new here in Fedora after installing the graphics drivers.

Thank you,
PEZ

P.S. my video card is a GeForce 7900 GT

Not really a topic for this part, it's more a general distro question. rpmfusion provides the nvidia-settings panel.

I'd recommend leaving SELinux enabled unless you have problems with it.

If you install from the NVIDIA package, you must run "execstack" on all of the NVIDIA libraries. This will allow you to leave SELinux enabled. If you want to know what execstack is, run "man execstack."

The RPMFusion package already does this for you.
