Problem Description

Fedora installs SELinux by default, and it does not give you an option he not to install it or turn it off initially.

Some licensed applications did not work as expected:

Workbench fails to create a WRLinux platform project, and also fails to create a remote usermode connection.

the 32bit Fedora13 doesn't report this problem. 
(SELINUX is enabled by default on all the RHEL4/5/6 hosts, wb didn't report error either.)

Expected Behavior
======================
Start workbench successfully.

Observed Behavior
======================
Failed to create new platform project or remote user-mode debug connection.

Logs
======================
NA

Misc Info 
======================
NA
