How do I enable SELinux?

Linode Staff

Is there a procedure to enable SELinux in the default kernel? If it's not possible in the default kernel, is there a suggested pre-built alternative?

I've found that I am unable to enable SELinux in my testing.

We do not offer SELinux with our default kernel.

You would need to make use of a distribution-supplied kernel for it to run and the process for doing so can be found here
