Package: selinux-utils
Version: 2.3-2+b1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

when using "sudo selinux-activate" to enable SELinux and setting rcS properly,
nothing actually happens once you reboot.The system respawns itself into a
working state once more but SELinux remains disabled with no clue as to
why.There is no other way to enable it and force a relabel of the system, which
does not seem to happen when enabling SELinux.

This seems to be a stretch problem as other version of debian seem to succeed
at this point.Id use Jessie but xarchiver and ark have SEVERE data loss issues
when making a backup set.
