Description adalsaady 2015-06-10 23:06:01 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing systemd-logind from 'getattr' accesses on the file /dev/shm/sem.9334581e-7251-4ef7-a8ec-5bfe8e89ff68.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that systemd-logind should be allowed getattr access on the sem.9334581e-7251-4ef7-a8ec-5bfe8e89ff68 file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep systemd-logind /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
