I've a strange issue.
with my experimental learning machine(LFS)
I'm able to load the policy etc.. but have no labels
on my files.(just a question mark);


ls -lZ shows

drwxr-xr-x   2 root root ?  4096 Feb 18 11:19 bin
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root ?  4096 Feb 19 22:36 boot

drwxr-xr-x   7 root root ?     0 Feb 19 22:42 selinux
drwxr-xr-x   8 root root ?  4096 Feb 18 11:19 share
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root ?  4096 Feb 10 09:54 srv
drwxr-xr-x  12 root root ?     0 Feb 19 22:42 sys
drwxrwxrwt   5 root root ?  4096 Feb 19 22:50 tmp
drwxr-xr-x   6 root root ?  4096 Feb 11 12:05 tools
drwxr-xr-x  14 root root ?  4096 Feb 14 10:09 usr
drwxr-xr-x  10 root root ?  4096 Feb 18 22:31 var
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root ?    24 Feb 10 13:11 vmlinuz ->
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.29-rc4

if I do a id -Z I get:
id: --context (-Z) works only on an SELinux-enabled kernel
(but it is enabled in the kernel)

>From looking back, I enabled as much as possible in any app/lib I was compiling
that provided selinux support.(libc,xserver,hal,dbus, etc..);
But could be missing an important app/lib that might make the security labels
give the proper label. by chance if anybody had experienced this and/or knows
what might be going on,(would be really appreciated).
