IPv6 is the Future, and the Future is Now!

It’s Monday afternoon, and LISA is chugging right along! I’m well into my second day of training, and having a great time, and learning a ton that I’m going to take back to work.

Re-Enabling SELinux Training

This morning, I’m attending Rik Farrow’s “Working with SELinux” course. As soon as I walked into the room, it became apparent that I’m in the right place. On the screen was the lead slide of Rik’s show, and the title was “Re-enabling SELinux”. For me, that’s so appropriate, because one of the items on my “new machine” checklist is “disable SELinux”. To me, it’s always been a source of irritation that stopped me from performing actions necessary to administer the machine. The most frustrating part was always that I knew it didn’t have to be like that.
