      What happens if you boot into runlevel 3 and then do startx. I put
      nothing past Gnome people or RH in breaking things.

      sestatus is the command to check that. Also /etc/sysconfig/selinux.

      setenforce 0 will change status to off, but that will be lost with
      reboot. setenforce=0 can be added to the kernel line though, if you
      want to boot it once to check. (Note that, especially if you're
      generally using it, it's much quicker to change, in
      /etc/sysconfig/selinux, to and from permissive--if you change to and
      from disabled/enabled, it will relabel upon bootup.
