The process of mass relabeling is transparent and yes, it can take some
time...depending upon how many files you have on your system and the
speed of your system/hard drive(s).
The problem is that if you decide to turn SELinux back on...
touch /.autorelabel && shutdown now -r
you may be presented with some problems that you will have to
troubleshoot after all the relabeling is done. Instead of dealing with
things as they come along, you may have many challenges at first boot
depending upon what kind of software you have installed and where you
installed it from. If you are only using Fedora packages, you shouldn't
have too many things to deal with.
It's a good idea to bring your system completely up-to-date before doing
the relabel/boot option so that you have all of the latest
