You do so by opening a terminal and run (as root, of course):

setenforce 0


What both Matej and Tim forget to mention is
the fact that by running setenforce 0 command
it will change your selinux configuration settings permanently to permissive
hence on next reboot your selinux would be running in permissive mode
instead of enforcing mode and leave your computer less secure...
Since when is this valid? On my system permanent changes must be done via /etc/sysconfig/selinux. setenforce looses its effects after reboot

Since I apperantly was born stuborn and have to have the last word in hasting misread the man page ( since I was being criticized by Matej by suggesting to the user the selinux might be the culprit and showing him how to set selinux to permissive mode with echo which apparently is not as as fansy way to do it as setenforce.. ) note Tim showed him the other way ( the apparently popular way ..setenforce 0 ) 8 minutes after I responded to him to achieve the same thing.. Don't worry I wont bother helping users again that accidental post to this list...

Best regards.
