SELinux is a crucial component of the Linux universe. It takes care of a majority of security issues which would be a headache to maintain and monitor should in a bare Linux installation.

Although this provides a secure environment to work on, it also makes a basic Linux install tedious especially if one is not aware of SELinux.
