    Trouble switching roles with SELinux


    I just installed SELinux and made my user account mapped to the staff_u SELinux user, but now when I go to switch roles to sysadm_r via
    Code:
    newrole -r sysadm_r
    I get this error message:
    Code:
    system_u:sysadm_r:sysadm_t is not a valid context
    This is my first time useing SELinux so I have no idea where to go from here.

    Ok, so I believe I've figured out my problem. The default contexts where not correct. I found this little gem:
    Gentoo Linux Documentation -- Troubleshooting SELinux
    And the bottom section on incorrect context seem to have solved my problem.
