I'll just note that generally speaking, we do fix such bugs, see e.g. .
So please open one and eventually it will be handled. Thanks.
That said, we do work hard to make everything work with selinux enabled.
If something in ovirt fails for you when it's enabled, and works if you
disable selinux, that's a much higher priority bug.

What did you find not working? Did you really encounter anything not being solved by setting Permissive mode instead disabling completely?
