remember kids always read the script that runs your enterpoop software:

# Disabling SELinux if enabled
if [ -f "/usr/sbin/getenforce" ] && [ `id -u` = 0 ] ; then
    selinux_status=`/usr/sbin/getenforce`
    /usr/sbin/setenforce 0 2> /dev/null
fi

That's alfresco disabling selinux quietly without a word in the doco (well it might be somewhere in that wiki...)

it's an Enterpoop CMS actually :-) Yes we run it as an unprivileged user. It should not need to (try to) disable selinux AFAICT. But this is a bundle install where it has it's own postgres DB and all sorts of other crap.

So just thought I'd try my mobile number in http://www.reverseaustralia.com It had my old address (5+ years ago) and then this little statistic:

"In 2006, there were 21,638 persons usually resident in 33 Barunga St Ngunnawal: 48.8% were males and 51.2% were females. Of the total population in 33 Barunga St Ngunnawal 0.9% were Indigenous persons, compared with 2.3% Indigenous persons in Australia."

God damn I knew it felt crowded.

Apparently there are about 15000 people with a similar demographic breakdown living in the place I used to reside in in Kambah 7-odd years ago (according to mobile number lookup).
