Bug Description

On a Centos 7 minimal installation running:

'ansible-playbook -K -vvvv -i inventory/localhost install.yaml'

Fails with message:

"target uses selinux but python bindings (python-selinux) are not installed"

Workaround is to install python-selinux before running the playbook:

'sudo yum install python-selinux'

I think the only thing we could really do is make sure we include this as part of one of the environment setup dependencies.

I think that actually makes a lot of sense, and is probably the simple (and correct) solution here. I might try and get a patch up shortly if I can reproduce this locally.
