Aka Shish’s Place of Stuff

SELinux on debian

Having spent several hours trying to figure out what was causing the following, it turns out that the selinux policy installer hadn’t noticed I was running SSH, and thus hadn’t loaded the module to allow it. “semodule -i /usr/share/selinux/refpolicy-strict/ssh.pp” loaded the module, then “restorecon -R -v /usr/sbin” reset the security tags to say that sshd belongs to ssh.
