With SELinux, you never know until you try. Since I run it in "Permissive Mode" on my Fedora 12 home desktop, it doesn't do anything except log exceptions.

Can't help with star. Not familiar with it. I use rsync with Fedora, and will use it with Debian 6 once it's all set up.

Like I said in my original reply, I've never been able to remove SELinux off a Fedora system without destroying the system itself. Don't know if it is possible to remove it rom a Debian system once it's been installed.
